Guess Who's Coming to the Party: Romney Foreign Pol. Advisor on StudentsFirstNY Board

As we noted earlier this month, Campbell Brown (former journalist at CNN) spouse Dan Senor is on the board of Democrat Michelle Rhee's StudentsFirstNY. Rhee voted for Barack Obama, but only after some begging, "I'm somewhat terrified of what the Democrats are going to do on education."
His presence brings significant Republican heft to StudentsFirstNY. For he is the former spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority (the UK and US run government over Iraq from 2003 to 2004) and is the chief Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan foreign policy advisor, according to the New York Times. This role was noted this week by Rachel Maddow of MSNBC. Oh yes, he is also a FoxNews contributor.

There you have it. That is the face of the local branch of the organization that is presenting the parent trigger movie, "Won't Back Down," at the Democratic National Convention. Actually, the board is bipartisan, having major donors to both major parties, as the New York Times noted earlier this month.
