    The Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department have been asked by two Washington, D.C. watchdog groups to investigate possible violations of campaign finance law by a company they suspect was created to funnel $1 million to a Super PAC operated by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s campaign staffers.

    A complaint by the Campaign Legal Center and Democracy 21 is outlined in a letter asking the FEC and Justice to “formally investigate” the activities of W Spann LLC for possible violations of a ban on making contributions in the name of another and for failing to organize and register as a political committee.

    The watchdogs said published reports “paint a picture of a corporation created for no other purpose than to hide the identity of the individual or individuals or corporations seeking to curry favor with a candidate seeking election to the highest office in the land.”

    This is very worrisome. It is bad enough there is too much money from questionable sources floating around, but when you have something like this, it's a problem. There needs to be a complete audit and investigation as to where this money came from.

    Dimwits do this all the time and think nothing of it. How about investigating where 3 million dollars came from that went for obamaturd when he was campaining that he refuses to disclose? If something was illegal then investigate it, but be fair and investigate both parties.

    I agree entirely.

    Of course, if the election next year is between Obama and Romney, I am going to write in "Sharp Stick to the Eye" as my candidate.

    I am writing in Joh Wayne, with Red Skelton as vp. That would be as good a ticket as they come:)

    No law was broken and isn't it telling you never demand investigations of Soro's practices.

    How do we know no law was broken if we don't have an investigation.

    It certainly LOOKS fishy, and I'd like to know who is buying Mitt Romney before we put him into office, don't you?

    This is no more than a leftwing tactic. Big frontpage headlines about an investigation, results will be buried on page 12. Nothing new here......but what about Soros? Oh yeah, he's a private entity and has no pull in American politics. :eusa_whistle:
