Scope and Content Note: RCIA started this rather than the Committee on Political Education (COPE) because of Suffridge's feelings about the AFL-CIO's political/legislative action. AFL-CIO lobbyist Andy Biemiller was in a rut. Charles Lipsen, a professional lobpyist and a good one, was hired to head ABC. Lipsen went with Suffridge on his world trip with Lyndon Johnson. Lipsen was fired after the 1968 RCIA election because he was playing both sides.
