Democratic candidates submitted POSITION PAPERS to AIPAC?
I just read this on AIPAC's "Briefing" page today. It's the last item after their mendacious brief that Palestinians want to attack the US interests around the world.

AIPAC Builds Ties With New Lawmakers
AIPAC reached nearly every lawmaker elected in Tuesday’s mid-term congressional elections as part of its effort to educate political candidates on the value of the U.S.-Israel relationship. During the campaign that ended Tuesday, nearly every viable candidate met with AIPAC professional staff members and submitted a position paper summarizing his or her views on U.S. Middle East policy. A non-partisan organization, AIPAC has for decades worked with Republican and Democratic members of Congress to strengthen the ties between the United States and Israel.
nothing particularly nefarious here...
...candidates, especially for federal office, get bombarded with requests from all sorts of organizations--from the most pious of do-gooders to the most pernicious of evil-doers--for position statements on issues relevant to the inquiring groups (NEA, NRA, for example).
Can we get copies of these position papers.
I'd like to see what they say.
