It’s been almost 5 months since a consortium of open government type groups asked Mitt Romney to release the name of his bundlers- and he continues to refuse.
Bundlers are individuals- usually very wealthy and powerful who use their own networks and connections to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars. And of course thse people often end up wtih ambasador positions, or at the least greatly increased access to the white house.
Obama discloses his bundlers. Romney revealed them in 2008. But this time Romeny insists on hiding the data, only releasing what is required by Federal law (only those bundlers who are lobbyists)
Why does this man hide everything having to do with money? And why do the republicans sit idly by, as well as blocking the Disclose Act, which would have forced the disclosure of those behind contributions exceeding $10,000 (applying to everyone from Unions to Corporations), blocked foreign owned and controlled corporationsoperating in the US from donating, and blocked corporations receiving TARP bailout funds from donating, as well as turning a blind eye to the millions in Dark Money funneling through superPACS such as Karl Roves Crossroads GPS- which in violation of the intent, if not the letter of the law in the Citizens United Decision, in which it was clearly stated that ALL donations should be public record, are using non-profits to funnel millions from undisclosed donors.
