Ellen Malcolm And EMILY's List

More

It's interesting how much scrutiny the Edwards campaign is getting over a 527 run by a former campaign manager....

Well, EMILY's List's Ellen Malcolm was one of the earliest major endorsers of Hillary Clinton....serves as a national co-chair of her presidential campaign...still serves as president of EMILY's List....even as EMILY's List is running an independent expenditure campaign in Iowa on Clinton's behalf.

Not that there's anything wrong with that....but the ties between Malcolm and the Clinton campaign are provably more tight than the ties between Baldick and John Edwards (although Edwards has taken to calling Baldick "a guy who used to work for me," which, while true, is a little too cute...)

Malcolm has said that she's created a firewall between herself and the independent expenditure efforts.
