More on (far)RightChange

Here’s another interesting twist on the story of RightChange.com, the North Carolina-based advocacy group running obnoxious ads against Senator Barack Obama. The Executive Director of RightChange is Tim Pittman, former communications director for Governor Jim Martin in his two terms as Governor from 1984-1992.

Pittman worked for the North Carolina Medical Society after Martin left office and now works in public relations for KBH, a national homebuilding company. That is when he is not moonlighting as the head of a group running ads about Obama’s tax proposals, one of which the conservative Tax Foundation says is a nonsensical lie.

Pittman started his career as a political reporter for the Greensboro News and Record and has never been regarded as rightwing ideologue, much like the two state legislators involved with RightChange, Representative Jeff Barnhart and Senator Fletcher Hartsell. But that’s all changed now, thanks to their role in spending the millions of pharmaceutical company CEO Fred Eshelman telling lies in 30-second commercials around the country.
