"Americans for Prosperity of Oregon" just launched a statewide TV ad campaign that highlights what they call government waste, fraud and incompetence. The ads feature so-called "PER’s Poster Children".   The commercial that just started running in Bend and throughout Oregon highlights a state worker who's getting a pension check of about $15,000 a month, after allegedly costing the state about $200 million, because he botched a large project. Spokesman Matt Evans says an earlier campaign seemed to generate a lot of interest. It's actually been very positive; thousand’s responded, hundreds sent messages to lawmakers to reform PERs. Americans for Prosperity of Oregon describes itself as a grassroots organization that works for limited government and economic freedom.
