Tax Increase Message From Brewer Pushed by Lobbyist Who Represents Anti-Tax Lawmakers

The wrestling match between Governor Jan Brewer, her veteran political consultant, and other Republicans is breaking out of the cage.

A conservative blog site, Gila Courier, points out that High Ground, the lobby group run by Brewer's consultant, Chuck Coughlin, has several Republican legislators as clients. Point being that these lawmakers may be forced to join Brewer's push for a tax increase -- or pay High Ground to defend their political seats against the company's own rhetoric.

You have to admit, Republicans know how to run a business.
