The 2012 campaign’s most secretive nonprofit wasn’t Crossroads GPS or Americans for Prosperity—it was the Democrats’ Priorities USA.

Founded by former Obama White House aides Bill Burton and Sean Sweeney, this shadowy outfit ... If the Priorities name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the sister group of the flagship pro-Obama super-PAC, Priorities USA Action. (Yes, the two names are confusing..)

Organized under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code, like the Sierra Club , Priorities USA can legally hide the identities of its donors, but it can’t spend the majority of its money on pure politics.
