So the Cincinnati Beacon has the PAC Campaign Finance Report from last year for COAST, the extremist conservative anti-tax and what I call anti-government group. On that report it lists a contribution of 3,000 from the Cincinnati Chapter of the NAACP last November. This contribution was made last October, according to the report, which was during the issue campaign that both COAST and the NAACP worked together on for the failed Charter Amendment to enact Proportional Representation in Cincinnati.
Does this constitute an endorsement of COAST by the Local NAACP? Or is this just evidence of the collaboration effort which was much more intertwined than average members of each group would have been told?
