Jimmy Mcmillan, There were a lot of (justified) laments this election cycle the anonymity of donor’s pour millions of dollars into advertising campaigns that target more often than Democrats.

But if more and more rare when the curtain is raised, we find that the usual suspects – the interests of companies with medium and super-rich conservative ideologues – are funding outside groups attacking the Democrats and Republicans strengthened across the country.

As a watchdog campaign finance told the Washington Post Sunday, “Obviously what you see with some of these reports is the tip of the iceberg. But even when you see the tip of the iceberg, you have a pretty good idea of what the rest of the iceberg is likely to resemble. ”

We’ve documented about how the financing of the Karl Rove supported by Carrefour U.S. – at least the small portion thereof for which donors are described – came almost entirely from a handful of billionaires. For example, Dallas oil (and billionaire) Trevor Rees-Jones gave Carrefour and at least 2 million this year. The group was to advertise in almost all the major races in the country.

Crossroads has raised more money from donors who, because they give a group of partners organized in a section of the tax code differect remain anonymous. Yet we can be pretty sure that money is not streaming in $ 50 and and 100 controls. It comes from the Rees-Jones on the world – and most probably from commercial interests in particular states where Carrefour is active.
