Republicans Block Online Disclosure Of Campaign Television Ad Spending
The Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision has created a flood of television ad spending — hundreds of millions of dollars — from outside groups, corporations, and individuals. The Justices who voted for the decision and its supporters argue that disclosure is all voters need to make informed decisions. But yesterday, a panel of House Republicans moved to keep much of this spending in the dark.

3. Seems like an opening for Democrats
They should point this out. Who are the Republicans so desperate to hide? Who is in a position to benefit from flooding GOP candidates with hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising? Terrorist organizations? Foreign governments who want to see America fail? Corporations who benefit from wars and deregulation? Could some of those interests be the very same ones who've profited the most lately? I can think of all kinds of interests that the GOP wouldn't want known to their supporters.
Let the GOP prove the Democrats are wrong in their accusations.
