Rep. DeFazio on a mission to track down opponent’s mystery donors
Rep. Peter DeFazio, a 12-term Democrat for Oregon, decides to knock on the door to the listed address of his opponent Art Robinson’s mysterious ad benefactor, Concerned Taxpayers of America. A U.S. Supreme Court decision earlier this year legalized unlimited corporation spending on election candidates, so the donors behind the organization can remain a secret until the required quarterly filing in October.
