While still keeping their donors secret:
"Over the past eight years, Americans for Prosperity has never advocated the election or defeat of any candidate choosing instead to focus on issue efforts," said Dallas Woodhouse, who heads the North Carolina chapter of AFP. He added, "In an unprecedented action for Americans for Prosperity, our organization will be purchasing paid media time to expressly advocate the defeat of President Barack Obama with a television, radio and social media effort launching on Wednesday, Aug. 8.
It's a testimony to how screwed up our election laws are that not-the-bus-driver could spout this drivel without being called out for it by the mainstream media. AFP has been running attack ads like this one against the President for quite some time:
Whether it contains "magic words" or not, that ad is designed to erode support for Obama, period. And the fact that AFP can broadcast such ads without disclosing who is actually paying for it is just plain crazy.
The next time one of your Republican buddies starts harping about Hugo Chavez or Iran sending money to Hamas, tell him: "At least we know who they are. Who is paying millions to run AFP ads on our (American) television networks?"
