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.
