Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Files Complaint Over Groups That Shield Donors
The Huffington Post | By Amanda Terkel Posted: 07/09/2012 9:41 am Updated: 07/09/2012 9:59 am

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is set to file a complaint on Monday with the Federal Election Commission arguing that conservative groups such as Crossroads GPS should not be given non-profit status and allowed to shield their donors, due to the large amount of political advocacy work they are doing.

The complaint targets Crossroads GPS, Americans for Prosperity and the 60 Plus Association, as the New York Times first reported. These groups are classified as 501©(4) organizations under the U.S. tax code, which means they can keep their donors' identities private but cannot be focused primarily on political activity.

<..> "Respondents are raising and spending millions of dollars to accomplish their major purpose of influencing federal elections, while hiding their funding sources," according to the complaint. "By operating in secret, they have violated and continue to violate the Federal Election Campaign Act."

Secrecy dominates the GOP/Romney campaigns. What are they hiding??
