The White House has proposed new rules for the controversial social welfare groups known as 501c4s, Politico reports.

We’re quite familiar with the tactic here. In the recent health levy campaign, opponents — Citizens for Fairness — accepted contributions from the Government Policies Foundation, a social welfare non-profit (at least one source tell me he’s been told the money actually came from a well-known private association working on alternative tax issues.)
We’ll likely never know about the contribution, though, because 501c4 donations are secret.
Secret non-profits are involved in lots of different local issues. The earnings tax, for example.
