Gasp! anonymously financed groups!

As we count down to November 2, the front page of the New York Times more and more resembles a broadsheet from the Democratic National Committee. Here's a screenshot from the website this morning, peppered with scare words. "Anonymously financed groups are starting a coordinated final push to deliver control ..."  How sinister! But isn't this what all "groups" do in all elections? No mention in the Gray Lady that the largest anonymously financed group in this election cycle is the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Workers. "We're the big dog," said Larry Scanlon, the head of AFSCME's political operations. "But we don't like to brag." And if he did brag, you wouldn't read it in the New York Times. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
