Thanks to David Levinthal of Public Integrity I was able to report earlier that the Federal Election Commission was attempting to get the American Future Fund to report contributors to its independent expenditures in behalf of candidates. It has among others, made a huge ad buy in behalf of Republican David Sterling, the gun nut extremist in the Republican runoff for attorney general.
Levinthal reports today the American Future Fund’s response. In so many words: Stick it where the sun don’t shine. The law doesn’t apply to them or their contributors.
