    American Action Network, a Washington group formed by Republican power broker Frederic V. Malek and run by former senator Norm Coleman (R-Minn.), collected $2.75 million from July 2009 to June 2010 in just 11 checks, the filing shows. The largest were two checks for $1 million apiece, and the smallest were two checks for $25,000.

    Due to its tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(4) advocacy group, the Network is not required to reveal the donor names.

    It is a couple of rich people who can hide their identity behind a c-4” tax status.

    Brian O. Walsh, the Network’s new president, responded that the initial filing reflected revenues needed for the group’s “start-up,” and that its donor base expanded as the group collected another $24 million or so in the four months preceding the election. He declined to discuss how many additional donors it had.

    New FEC filings show that American Crossroads, the Karl Rove-backed group that is pouring money into attack ads targeting Democrats around the country, continues to be funded virtually entirely by billionaires.

    Does anyone wonder why Republicans want to cut taxes and give subsidies to millionaires and billionaires?

    So the entire left wing agenda is funded by George Soros money funnelled through his various groups, and you are whining about one group funding the GOP?

    Exactly who is claiming this is a grass roots organization? And if you dont know who the donors are how do you know they are billionaires?

    You want to see how to run the idiot RDean right out of a thread about donations to political parties?

    Deano, given your claims that the Republicans are the party of "big business" how do you respond to the FACT that candidate Obama received more money in campaign donations from Wall Street than any other candidate in history?

    Haul ass little man, you know you will. This has been asked of 9 times now with your only response being asses and elbows.

    82 percent of the group’s initial revenues came from three donors – the two unnamed millionaires plus an unidentified donor who gave $250,000 -- illustrating, she said, how “very few people are having a disproportionate impact on our country’s elections.”

    --------------------------

    They have to file a tax form the following year, but don't have to say where the money came from.
