A leaked memo from a chemical industry lobbyist recommended fighting increased regulation in California by hiring an "attack dog" public relations firm to spy on industry opponents, arrange protests and recruit conservative talk show hosts.

The memo reportedly was written by Tim Shestek, a lobbyist for the California office of the American Chemistry Council. It recommended hiring the firm of Nichols-Dezenhall, a Washington, D.C., public relations company known for its aggressive tactics to carry out an ambitious California campaign against the precautionary principle.
