Here we go again. Remember last fall when big super PACs were funded by anonymous millionaire and billionaire donors and ran ads to try to influence voters? Well, they're doing it again.
Americans for a Strong Defense is one of several new conservative groups financed by anonymous donors and running ads urging Democratic senators to vote against Chuck Hagel, President Barack Obama's nominee for secretary of Defense.
Another, Use Your Mandate, presents itself as a liberal gay-rights group, but curiously, it purchases its TV time through a prominent Republican firm to attack Hagel in ads and mailings as "anti-gay," "anti-woman" and "anti-Israel." Such underhanded deception stinks, and we should be able to know who's behind it.
