Amy Dacey is the executive director of The Fund for America. According to the Washington Post, "The group, which was founded in November by former Clinton White House chief of staff John Podesta, Service Employees International Union Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger and donor Rob McKay, is widely expected to serve as a financial clearinghouse for progressive soft-money expenditures in the presidential election. Dacey comes to the post directly from SEIU where she had served as an adviser to Burger. Prior to that job she served as political director for Sen. John Kerry's Keeping America's Promise political action committee and was the traveling political director during Kerry's 2004 presidential bid. ... In her new job, she is likely to be entrusted with tens (and perhaps even hundreds) of millions of dollars to parcel out to any number of progressive (read: Democratic) organizations seeking to influence the 2008 election.
