Liberal counter-offensive

Posted By on Tue, Nov 23, 2010 at 6:30 AM

Organizing is underway for a liberal media effort to counteract the money conservative groups poured into the mid-term elections. Yes, this group's efforts include an organization whose contributions may be kept secret.

The lack of disclosure among Republican-leaning outside groups became a central Democratic talking point this year as spending by outside groups on the right exploded before the midterm elections.

But the overriding desire on the part of liberal donors and activists to hold on to the White House and to win back some of what was lost in the House and Senate may trump those principles. Most political operatives agree that it is easier to raise money if the option of offering anonymity is available.

“It would be sort of a funny principle to stand on, to essentially tie one hand behind your back,” Mr. [Rob] McKay said.
