Profiles in courage: Funder of attack ads wants secrecy for donors

Profiles in courage: Funder of attack ads wants secrecy for donors
November 8, 2010 --

An advocacy group that spent $152,000 to help dump Georgia Congressman Jim Marshall wants to keep the identity of its donors secret. But it can’t, at least when it tries to influence state and local campaigns, under a draft opinion under review by the State Ethics Commission. The Center for Individual Freedom, led by CEO Jeffrey L. Mazzella, asked in August whether it could avoid disclosing donors for its political ads.
