Anonymous donor gives $10 million for anti-Obama ads


“An anonymous donor has given $10 million to run ads attacking President Obama and his policies, escalating the money race that is defining the 2012 presidential campaign,” the Washington Post reports. “And in the new, free-wheeling environment of independent political giving, the identity of this donor, like many others, is likely to remain a permanent mystery.”

“The donation went to Crossroads GPS, the conservative nonprofit group founded with support of political operative Karl Rove, which also reported another donor giving at least $10 million over the past two years, according to draft tax returns released by the organization.”
