The Chamber of Commerce.... :angry5: Rachel Maddow has been reporting on the political activities of the Chamber for several nights on her MSNBC show.

Following ThinkProgress Report, Chamber Runs Ads For Democrats Who Opposed Health Care Overhaul

Earlier this week, a ThinkProgress investigation found that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has been raising funds from foreign-based corporations to solicit funding for their general 501(c)(6) entity, and that entity runs approximately $75 million worth of partisan attack ads. This week alone, the Chamber ran nearly $10.5 million in attack ads in many of the most competitive elections in America. Republican candidates in the nine Senate and 22 House districts are benefiting from the Chamber’s support.

Now, Politico reports that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce — perhaps in an attempt to distance itself from the fact that it operates as a wing of the Republican Party — will start airing aids backing conservative Democrats who voted against the recent health care overhaul
