Hmmm ... So is USANext, aka United Seniors Association, aka Americans Lobbying Against Rationing of Medical Care, USA, really just a Republican party front operation operating at the behest of Karl Rove?
Well, let's see.
BBB Wise Giving Alliance, a rating and reporting bureau for public charities and nonprofits, notes that one of United Seniors Association's (USA) "affiliates" is O'Neill Marketing Company (OMC).
Apparently, it's a very tight affiliation since both are located at 3900 Jermantown Road, Suite 450. (USA lists Suite 450; OMC lists 450A).
Despite my now living in New York I sometimes still feel the need to translate from Beltwayese into standard English. So in this case, in DC-speak we would say that United Seniors Association is 'colocated' with O'Neill Marketing Company whereas in standard English we would say that United Seniors Association 'is' O'Neill Marketing Company.
O'Neill's front page lists its first selling point as: "We are a 'marketing' department for our clients, as if we were right down the hall."
And I guess they're really not kidding about that one.
OMC's other clients include ...
National Republican Congressional Committee Republican National Committee Republican Governors Association Empower America/Citizens for Sound Economy
