Koch Brothers, Chamber of Commerce Face Possible Campaign Donation Disclosure After Ruling

as posted to VLTP by Donna Brusoski

WASHINGTON — On Friday evening, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a ruling that could begin the process of revealing the identities of secret donors to groups connected to Karl Rove and the Koch brothers.

The court ruled in Van Hollen v. Federal Election Commission that the FEC rules that restricted campaign donor disclosure are not valid and must be changed to provide for disclosure.

David Koch is major funder of independent groups, like Americans for Prosperity, that would be forced to disclose their donors for “electioneering communications” under the District Court’s ruling in Van Hollen v. Federal Election Commission (FEC).
