Tammy Lyles is executive director of conservative front group Free the Eagle. As recently as March 2006, she signed a letter on behalf of Free The Eagle as "Tammy Lyles".

In September 2003, Lyles, listed as a consultant for Eberle Communications Group, contributed $100 to Libertarian candidate Gary Nolan for President, according to Federal Election Commission records. [3] In 2002, "[f]or most of the campaign, Nolan led the field of candidates; however, controversy over his involvement with Tammy Lyles sunk his candidacy. Lyles, a fixture at meetings of the Religious Right, paid large settlements to the Federal Election Commission for violations of campaign finance laws." [4]

Lyles was "(and perhaps still is)" the treasurer of RUFF-PAC, Howard J. Ruff's political action committee. [5]

See Free The Eagle article for details on relationships between Lyles and Gary Nolan and RUFF-PAC.
