Political Groups Fight to Shroud Super PAC Donors

Hosted by

Conservatives have waged a long battle against restrictions on campaign finance, claiming that there would be no corruption if voters knew where the money was coming from. Now that they've won their battle in the US Supreme Court, they've changed their tune. In a recent speech, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voiced concern that if the names of high-profile political donors were made public, contributors could face bullying and harassment from liberals out to "muzzle" free speech. The Wall Street Journal has warned that corporations might face boycotts and picket lines if their names are revealed.
