AmericanCrossroadsWatch.org Files Criminal Complaints, Offers Reward, Creates Ads, And Launches Boycotts
Today, www.AmericanCrossroadsWatch.org, a group of national watchdog organizations dedicated to clean elections and corporate accountability launched a new campaign to stop Karl Rove from using dirty tricks and dirty money to manipulate the mid-term elections by buying candidates who will support Big Business and deregulation. Rove created American Crossroads ("AC") several months ago in a hostile takeover of the Republican National Committee, and funded it by joining forces with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a cabal of billionaire corporate barons opposed to any common sense regulation, health care, environmental protection, or financial accountability. The Chamber's Chief Counsel, Steven Law, was named AC's CEO. AC plans to amass more than $50 million from companies making secret donations, and spend that money to influence elections and buy candidates.
