Does anyone think charges will be brought against the dark money supporting Prop. 32 in CA?

Who would bring those charges? Is it an FEC violation or would it be litigated by the state? Would there be any chance at all of the Koch Brothers being culpable? It's easy to see that operatives farther down the food chain would be held responsible, but wouldn't it be fantastic if parties like the Koch Brothers and Karl Rove were actually found guilty as well?

3. Not so sure about that.

This was pretty deliberate money laundering. Just not sure whether it becomes CA's issue to litigate or if it meets a standard for FEC to get involved.
