DCCC v. Crossroads

Alexander Burns reports at Politico:
Democrats haven’t yet found an outside group that can counter the might of American Crossroads on the right. But the DCCC has launched a website to answer the conservative group’s online offensive against the Obama administration. Just yesterday, Crossroads GPS unveiled Wikicountability.org – a hub for posting files and other data obtained from the Obama administration through the Freedom of Information Act. Today, the DCCC responds with Wikipocrisy.org, a website that blasts Crossroads for pushing a transparency-themed initiative while taking huge sums from anonymous donors. The DCCC’s Jennifer Crider: “Crossroads GPS has spent millions of dollars from secretive, hidden donors on misleading campaigns. If Crossroads GPS wants to be taken seriously on transparency it must practice what they preach and the names of their secretive donors.” http://bit.ly/hwrmQR
