The Federal Elections Commission has rejected a complaint against Joel Gilbert, responsible for the smear film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” that was mailed to millions of potential voters in swing states during the 2012 election cycle. The film alleges that the President’s father is Frank Marshall Davis. The complaint is based on the fact that the persons who funded the effort have not been disclosed. The complaint is MUR 6779.
At this point, I am leaving this article in skeletal form, pending further information, and not knowing whether it will be appealed or not.
My general view is that when it comes to political money, more disclosure is better than less.
