Corporations are now out of the game. Now it will be we the people.

So why hasn't the Strib told us the names of these 3 groups and why don't these groups want their names revealed. Are they hiding something?

should only come from Us citizens and should be limited to a certain amount per individual. Unions non industrial and industrial business including companies and corp. with in and outside of the US should not be allowed to donate or have politicians sit on their board of directors. The media is given special privileges to protect the general public that they have abused these special rights to support a particular party or politicians. They should be limited to just report the news and anything of a bias nature not reporting both sides of the story with only the truth should be not permitted and fined. The press can make or break a politician at any level and that in its self is unconstitutional. Politicians and the media needs to be have its act cleaned up. Federal government grants should not be awarded to any past or present member of congress that benefits them financially for example Al Gore has become worth billions personally with tax payer funds since he left office promoting global warming information that was not factual. Tom Dascle is another example. These ex federal politicians and many others should be behind bars along with Frank,Dodd, Rom. Axlerod. most of the congressional black caucus, acorn and last but least Obama. They were involved with the selling of housing market investments and sat on boards of lending institutions. They were aware of the the true value of these stocks and that these lending institutions were upside down and continued to sell and make money. That is a felony regardless if you hold federal public office or not. Any other Justice dept.except Eric Holder would have investigated and prosecuted these and many more along with many CEOS. They stole many individuals complete retirement and put millions out of work.

whichever side of the aisle you are on. I don't care if you are a corporation or an individual. We have a right to know who is supporting who.

I guess after the big Target/MNForward controversy, one must imagine that these organizations are afraid of any possible backlash.

Not necessarily so. The census dept. was unconstitutionally moved from the US Chamber to the justice dept. under Holders control. Under the Holder this administration spent more on the census this year than all other years put together since it was put in place. Many areas were censused heavily and other districts were not. Making the electoral college and vote one sided which does not represent one vote for one US citizen. You vote may not be counted or make a difference on way or another. This country should go to a straight populist vote with heavy regulation and over sight of voting sites along with the counting. What Franken and Soros got away with in the state of Minnesota is no much different than casting your vote in Iran. the more money Soros kicked out the more recounts and votes surfaced until he was placed in office. The Sad thing is Soros is not even from this country let alone the state of Minnesota and he did the same thing to California politics until the money ran out. Soros prey became the Minnesota primarily the Twin cities because of the weight it carried compared to the rest of the state. Franken was his ticket. After air America went bankrupt along with other Franken/Soros business ventures they set their sights on Minnesota because of were Franken grew up not were he had lived the last 25 years.

on the MINN. Bishops Campaign? Let he people be hears on both sides. if it were a pro progressive leaning article or piece it would have a comment section. Stop being bias!!!!!!!!

Really, who cares? It is well known that the Rs get most of their money from pro-business groups and the Ds get theirs from unions and the mega rich. It boils down to whether you pull the lever every November! If you do not religiously vote (primaries included) you can not complain.

hahaha99Sep. 20, 10 6:20 PM

That would require a constitutional amendment, which, fortunately, will probably never happen.

kraigalanSep. 20, 10 6:32 PM

It would show up either way, who cares!!! Now, birdman, I agree where is the comment section for the Winona bishop's GAY stance, why do divorced people get to vote, they have no standards.
