Bill To Force Campaign Finance Disclosure Fails

  

Democrats in the state Senate have fallen one vote short in their effort to force political nonprofit groups to reveal their donors this election season -- a response to $15 million in anonymous contributions during the 2012 campaign.

The bill needed one more vote yesterday and two Democrats are on a leave of absence due to political scandals. 

That meant Democrats couldn't pass the bill without Republican support and the GOP was opposed.
