Formal Complaint Filed Against Karl Rove's Group For Violating Tax Laws More great news for our AmericanCrossroadsWatch.org
campaign, and many thanks to all those who helped. As we noted last
week, over ten thousand of you have sent letters to Congress and the
Department of Justice demanding an investigation of Karl Rove's American
Crossroads group for raising and spending tens of millions in secret
corporate donations to support pro-corporate candidates. These letters
convinced Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus to ask the Internal
Revenue Service to conduct a full investigation into all groups
improperly using a tax-exempt status to manipulate elections. And today,
a formal complaint was filed with the IRS accusing Rove's American
Crossroads group of illegally doing just that. See the complaint here.

We have been working closely with the Campaign Legal
Center that filed this IRS complaint and we expect to file additional
legal complaints in the coming days with the Federal Elections
Commission and the Department of Justice. Our campaign has become the
go-to resource for the media, politicians and even candidates who want
to know about the shadowy groups trying to buy politicians. And we have
just released four new ads calling on GOP candidates in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky and Pennsylvania to reject the support of Rove and American Crossroads.
We need your support to run these ads, press releases, and legal filings. Please make a donation here to help us and protect our elections this year.
There is a great deal of information on the AmericanCrossroadsWatch.org site, so spend some time there and pass it on to your friends.
