Secret Money

Dayton Daily News:

Outside groups such as Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS are pumping millions of dollars into U.S. Senate races including Ohio’s, raising complaints among Democrats that independent, secretive PACs are distorting the election process with a seemingly unlimited flow of money from groups that do not have to disclose their donors....

....At least $11 million has been spent against Brown by so-called social welfare nonprofits, known as 501c’s because of their IRS tax designation, according to amounts released by the groups. These organizations are also exempt from donor and spending limits and Federal Election Commission filings because they say supporting or opposing candidates is not their primary activity.

As a result, it is not clear who is bankrolling the ad campaign against Brown....

I think every Ohioan would like to know which people from outside of Ohio are propping up a thoroughly weak, pro-right wing candidate like Republican Josh Mandel.  Josh Mandel cannot even do his current job as Ohio Treasurer and continues to depend on his political appointees and  others to carry out his duties while he visits his contributors around the state, the country, and the Bahamas.

Any group that has a connection with sexist Karl Rove cannot be worth anything. If you need more information, on Karl Rove, just Google Karl Rove and Valerie Plame.  You can also watch the movie, "Fair Game" or read the book.

The Boston Herald has information about some of Bain Capital's early investors.  It is very frightening that Mitt Romney accepted money from the people described in the article. Did Mitt Romney worship money and invest with people with questionable backgrounds?
