Transparency: Democrats Won’t Name Donors of “Open and Accessible” Convention

Posted by on Aug 22, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Obviously they’re hiding something. Using the logic employed by Obama’s persons of hench and Dingy Harry, perhaps there’s something felonious here.

Democratic Party officials say they will not release the names of donors to next month’s political convention before the event, despite an earlier pledge that they would regularly disclose the contributors.

In its marketing materials, the party promises that the “people’s convention,” set to begin Sept. 3 in Charlotte, will be the “most open and accessible ever.” But the names of donors, some of whom are giving up to $100,000, will remain secret until federal disclosure documents are filed Oct. 15, six weeks after the festivities have ended, when public attention will have shifted to Election Day.

Then when we find out who was involved they’ll tell us it’s old news.

There’s no end to the hypocrisy of these people.

Democrats have made transparency a central theme of the campaign, pushing for legislation requiring groups to disclose donors. In a recent e-mail to supporters, President Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, asked for signatures on a petition calling for conservative interest groups to reveal the names of contributors.
