Conservative Colorado dark money group behind GOP infighting in Omaha mayoral race

A series of flyers attacking antiLGBT rights (see Editor's Choice links at left) mayoral candidate and current city councilwoman Jean Stothert, is apparently being funded, to the tune of $25,000, by a Colorado organization, "Set It Straight," connected to Patrick Davis, a Colorado Spring-based political consultant, according to KETV's I-Team investigator Ryan Luby.
     The born-yesterday local organization at the receiving end of the bounty is called the "Omaha Alliance for the Public Trust."
     Omaha Political insider has discovered that the Omaha organization:
  • uses a burn phone as its listed phone number
  • the physical address is a UPS store physical address and a P.O. Box (250) can't be obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request
     Omaha Political Insider also discovered that Omaha Alliance for the Public Trust treasurer Laura Paulson sent a campaign statement to the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission from a fax machine at Semaan Engineering Solutions, in Elkhorn, where she has a voice-mail address.
