Something big happened in Richmond last week -- and a couple millionaires and billionaires are hoping you didn't notice.
The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed last week that groups like the Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity and Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS should have to disclose exactly who's behind the millions of dollars they're spending to influence this election.
They're going to try to avoid this for as long as they can. After all, they have a vested interest in being able to spend millions anonymously to influence our elections -- many of the corporations and individuals funding their organizations don't want their agendas to receive scrutiny from the press or the public.
We can make sure they don't get away with hiding these donors -- or their agendas. But it's going to take a lot of us standing up, putting our foot down, and saying "Hell no."
We've put together a petition demanding that these secret front groups disclose for the country exactly who their donors are. Do what these guys won't do: Let the country know exactly what you stand for by adding your name today.
Ask yourself: Don't we all have a right to know exactly which corporations and individuals are spending millions in attack ads to influence elections -- and what their agendas are?
If you agree, add your name today:
Jim Messina Campaign Manager Obama for America
----- More than 2 million people like you power this campaign. If you can, please donate today.
Anonymous donors that are singled out by name - sure whatever.
Does this mean every union member’s name would have to be disclosed? And how about the donors to Media Matters?
I think it is more important to demand the Attorney General of the United States comply with a lawful request for damn documents where an employee of the Fedral government was murdered!
THATS CHUTZPAH FROM A GUY WHO DOESNT EVEN DO ADDRESS VERIFICATION ON CREDIT CARD DONATIONS: Obamas Lawyer Demands Information on Groups Donors. The lawyer for President Obama demanded on Tuesday that Crossroads GPS disclose its donors, saying in a complaint to the Federal Election Commission that the group is plainly a political committee subject to federal reporting requirements. Heres background on those unverified credit card donations.
