Chamber of Commerce threatening critics? FBI probe requested.

Just a quick note to point to an item at LegalSchnauzer on threats by the United States Chamber of Commerce and its supporters against one of the Chamber's persistent critics, Velvet Revolution (VR).

Our readers will recall the VR campaign, StopTheChamber.com, as one that was started in 2009 to focus attention to possibly illegal activities of the Chamber, under its chief Tom Donahue,

Yesterday, LegalSchnauzer reported that a new letter has been sent to the FBI by VR's attorney, Kevin Zeese, requesting that the law enforcement agency investigate a series of threats against his organization. 

These reportedly began shortly after launch of the Stop The Chamber campaign and included insults and explicit threats of violence.  They've apparently increased with VR's current advocacy efforts to track other Chamber activities such as the joint campaign financing effort with Karl Rove, AmericanCrossroadsWatch.org
