D.N.C. Spokesman's Former Group Didn't Disclose Donors Either - NYTimes.comBrad Woodhouse, spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, is the latest ally of President Obama to go after the dangers of undisclosed money in the political process. In a letter sent yesterday to editorial board members at news organizations across the country, Mr. Woodhouse excoriated the collection and use of the money in the current elections. ďAnonymous special interests and unnamed corporations are pouring tens of millions of dollars into electoral politics this fall, money that has the potential to tip the scales in close races across the country,Ē Mr. Woodhouse wrote in the letter. He lamented the ďpernicious effects of secret, special interest money.Ē
But just a couple of years back, Mr. Woodhouse was the president of a political organization that took donations without disclosing the identities of the donors. Mr. Woodhouse was president of Americans United for Change, a liberal group that says its mission has been to challenge ďthe far-right conservative voices and ideas that for too long have been mistaken for mainstream American values.Ē
Once again, nothing about the current political situation is new. The same people are just doing the same things they always do.
