Should Ohio G.O.P. candidates like Andy Thompson, John Kasich, or Rob Portman return U.S. Chamber of Commerce or American Crossroads GPS campaign money if it is shown that it comes in part from foreign entities like the State Bank of India ?
Think Progress has in the past few days blown the whistle on groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Carl Rove's American Progress GPS that are receiving anonymous "shadow donations" that come from offshore multinationals and foreign nations like India, Bahrain, Russia, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia. Since the current G.O.P. candidates for state offices, Governor of Ohio, and the U.S. Senate have proclaimed themselves as "patriots" who favor American interests, shouldn't they, as a matter of conscience, return any donations - or refuse all support - that comes from groups like the C. of C. or American Crossroads GPS that have solicited money from foreign sources like the State Bank of India or the government-owned bank of Bahrain? Do such entities have a right to buy an American election to facilitate their monopolistic trade interests that result in lost jobs in the U.S.?
