The New York Times > Washington > Campaign 2004 > Bush's Backers Donate Heavily to Veteran Ads

Another example of how the '527s' are a terrible substitute for money that would otherwise be directly available to the candidates and the political parties. George Soros and the others who fund groups like will always find ways to use $ to influence political races and the quest for power that will support their ideas and philosophies. The channels may be different, but the outcome is the same. 'Big Money' remains in politics and always will. The 527s provide the opportunity for candidates to say: "I didn't do/say it" and easily point fingers at others who, they say, have no connection to the campaigns. Do they think we believe there is 'no connection?' Nonsense!

As I've stated previously, McCain-Feingold is a bad idea poorly implemented and regulated.
