“Democrats to ask for curbs on donor-shielding groups”

NYT: “The Democratic Party’s Senate campaign arm will file a formal complaint Monday, July 9, with the Federal Election Commission against three of the Republicans’ biggest campaign groups, accusing them of willful violations of federal election law and asking that their electioneering be stopped. The complaint by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee against Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, Americans for Prosperity and the 60 Plus Association begins a new phase in the Democrats’ struggle to keep pace with Republicans since the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling. That decision cleared the way for unlimited campaign donations to a new breed of super PACs from corporations, unions and wealthy contributors.”
