In 2009 she went on hiatus from DKos to work on Alexi Giannoulias's Senate campaign as a director of new media. She's now back at Daily Kos, writing a series on the inner workings of the campaign industry: "Staffers, consultants, advisors, fundraisers — they live primarily in the shadows, in a dusty corner of our politics that receives little sunlight or accountability. Most of the billions spent in campaigns every year gets funneled through their hands." After an intro, her first essay is about call time, big donors, and finance consultants.
