Politico reports today that Democrat Rep. Chris Van Hollen is suing the FEC to disclose anonymous donors that contributed to independent groups which in turn supported mostly Republicans:
Maryland Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen is suing the Federal Election Commission in an effort to force disclosure of anonymous donations to the types of independent groups that during the midterm elections spent millions of dollars on advertising that largely favored Republicans.
Van Hollen’s lawsuit, filed Thursday in federal court in Washington, challenges FEC regulations that allow nonprofit groups to shield their donors while airing ads known as “electioneering communications,” which don’t expressly urge votes for or against a candidate.
Levin says this is nothing more than an attempt for the Obama administration to bully those who stand against him and his statist policies, by taking away any federal contracts they may have and giving them to more friendly organizations. They claim it’s in the name of transparency but we know better.
Levin emphatically states “this damn government is so out of control it’s not even funny. It’s disgusting!”
