This will be short and sweet. The George Soros-backed OpenSecrets.org (@OpenSecretsDC) wants Twitter followers help it to “track billions of dollars flowing into the 2012 election.”

Several things are interesting about this.
1. This is just one more tactic to convince Americans that there is something amiss with the Romney campaign’s fundraising.
Last week, I wrote that OpenSecrets.org, part of the George Soros-funded Center for Responsive Politics, is a member of a faux campaign finance coalition that is asking you to sign a petition calling for the names of Romney’s top fundraisers.
The majority of the members of this so-called “coalition” receive funding from Soros and his Open Society entities.
In essence, we have Soros proxies doing the master’s bidding.
2. OpenSecrets.org doesn’t really need anyone’s help to get this info. OpenSecrets.org gets its campaign donor information through public access to records available from the Federal Election Commission.
You can prove this fact for yourself. The Presidential Donor Lookup page clearly states
- All the numbers in this database are for the 2012 election cycle and based on Federal Election Commission data released electronically on 6/21/12.
Note that the page also clearly states:
- Candidates must provide donors’ names when they have contributed more than $200 in total to the campaign.
That even includes bundlers, who must still name names.
3. What OpenSecrets.org and the “coalition” are really asking is for advance insider information not readily or immediately available from the FEC. Note that the most recent electronically-available date is a month old.
Given that the Obama campaign has outraised the Romney campaign thus far — yet has outspent it — Obama for America is very concerned that the Romney camp has hidden resources.
What the mass media and OFA do not bother to explain is that the Romney campaign is stuck with the funds it has left available from the primary elections and cannot dip into general election funds until after the Republican convention seals the deal on who is the GOP’s official candidate.
This is the funding that has OFA so concerned — and they’re counting on “concerned citizens” to spill any and all info to them via OpenSecrets.org and other Soros proxies.
Great plan — if it works.
