“Republican FEC Commissioners Go Public With Complaints About Mystery Redaction”

Shane Goldmacher:

The Republican commissioners of the Federal Election Commission have broken their silence about the mysterious 76-page document that was redacted against their wishes in the deadlocked decision over whether Crossroads GPS was a legitimate nonprofit.

In a statement posted to the FEC’s website late Tuesday, the commission’s three Republicans pulled back the curtain a bit on the missing document. “We do not believe that these redactions are necessary,” they wrote, saying they had sought to release the documents in a closed-door commission meeting but “the vote failed.”

National Journal first reported the existence of the massive redaction and the behind-the-scenes controversy earlier this month.
