    You gotta be kidding me .....................

    You're whining about something like this
    when Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie are funneling in Billions of undisclosed corporate dollars into campaigns across the country?????

    And the Chamber of Commerce is doing the same with foreign donations which is against the Law?

    Chamber Of Commerce Thrust Into Political Firestorm
    First Posted: 10- 6-10 01:07 PM
    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's $75 million campaign effort for the 2010 elections is being threatened by allegations that the business lobby receives funds from foreign entities to use on electioneering.

    Billionaires give 91 percent of funds for Rove-tied group
    The latest fundraising numbers from the conservative American Crossroads show the super-rich continue to pony up
    New FEC filings show that American Crossroads, the Karl Rove-backed group that is pouring money into attack ads targeting Democrats around the country, continues to be funded virtually entirely by billionaires.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20018631-503544.html"We have a system in place for ensuring that they are not government-controlled entities," Freeman continued. "The Chamber is proud to have global companies among our membership. We're careful to ensure that we comply with all applicable laws."

    The Chamber does not disclose its donors, making it difficult to trace where the money for its ads is coming from. The group generally backs Republican candidates, though it has supported a small number of Democrats in this campaign cycle, including West Virginia Senate candidate Gov. Joe Manchin.

    The Chamber successfully lobbied earlier this year to help kill a piece of legislation supported by Democrats called the DISCLOSE Act designed to force donors to identify themselves in campaign ads. The DISCLOSE Act was a response to the Citizens United court case giving companies permission to spend unlimited money anonymously to support or oppose a candidate.

    Allegations

    Just like if I made an allegation that you are smart. It doesn't necessarily mean you are.

    If you read the article, there are multiple instances where this activity is suspected. That's not so easily dismissed. It does warrant investigation.

    And is there anything wrong with that, if it is true?

    "Wrong" only in the sense that one facet of society is usings its resources to advance its welfare over less capable segments of society and without their knowledge. The entire electorate should know that all those ads are being paid for by the very rich. Therefore, one should be wary that those individuals being touted might not have your welfare at heart.
