    http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/08/05/7267416-in-dig-at-romney-huntsman-calls-for-donor-transparencyNASHUA, NH -- In the last day of his week-long swing through New Hampshire, Jon Huntsman jabbed the Romney campaign, calling for accountability in campaign fundraising in response to the report about a mysterious $1 million donation to a pro-Romney Super PAC.

    "What is important on the fundraising is transparency, knowing where the money comes from and having a reporting requirement allows the voters of this country to know who is contributing, when they contributed," he told reporters.

    The guy behind the donation turns out to be a long time Romney supporter.

    But the logical conclusion is that anyone (including diverse groups like the Russian Mafia, the Chinese Communist Party, the military junta of Myanmar, etc) can set up such a shell company, do their donation, and fold. And none would be the wiser.
