More Turnover at a Big Donor Shop

+ More

The Democracy Alliance, a cadre of superwealthy Democratic fundraisers that bankrolls such major beltway groups as the Center for American Progress, is doing a fine job maintaining its very low profile, but we've learned that it's experiencing another in a series of shake-ups at the top. Founded soon after the 2004 election, the alliance—whose website is blank and phone number is unlisted—recently named its third new chief in two years: Kelly Craighead, a longtime pal of Bill and Hillary Clinton and a personal assistant to Hillary when she was first lady. Craighead gets her first crack at donors later this month, at the year's leadoff conference for the group.
