Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted the Obama administration for supporting the Disclose Act in an Op-Ed today, calling it an attempt to identify and punish political enemies, or at the very least, intimidate others from participating in the process.
Writing in USA Today, the Kentucky Republican said the measure is a serious attempt to limit our freedom of speech that doesn't sound good at first blush.
The DISCLOSE Act Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections would require corporations, unions, and advocacy groups to reveal their roles in political ads or mailings in the closing months of a campaign.
McConnell said that the Disclose Act is billed as reform but is instead an attempt to identify and punish political enemies, or at the very least, intimidate others from participating in the process an effort that's already underway.... more at link...

If you let him do whatever he wants, why shouldn't he?
Yup, why is he calling 911 when it is he that should be answering the calls?
The Chicago mayor announced he would not even take calls from him concerning the funding.
Meanwhile Obama engages in illegal lotteries for donations and illegally fundraises donations for foreign non-citizen donors abroad.
Well now I have ‘heard’ that bullying is the ‘unforgivable’ sin.... Who would have imagined we hired a bully to intimidate US into the poor house????? Always remember LIBERALS always accuse others of doing the very thing they are proficient at ‘performing’.
I wonder which political party would receive the view under the microscope by the "news" media, and which party would be left alone (no reporting)? Isn't that the real intent of this bill?
This is what happened to Roberts.
Mitch - its time you went into retirement and watch the grass grow.
We need somebody with a lot more aggressiveness who can fight the enemy with his own tactics and beat him.
How about some legislation that would benefit Republicans and COnservatives??? THAT would make more sense than whining about the fact that your oppoenent is trying to oppose you!!!
Two can play the game of intimidation and the reward of promotion and protection. Because the GOP has refused to confront and protect their supporters and instead, left them hanging in the wind of radical perseuction, Dems have that power right now over all US voters, business and institutions.
Fight or step aside McConnell! You have sat on your fat fanny while the Dems have transformed the domestic war on terror against GOP voters, ideology and interests. You dumb a$$. Wake up and use the full force of your power and connections to defeat them and punish them or retire.
