    • On January 14, 2008, by Gabriela - The public has a right to know who is contributing to senators’ campaigns – immediately, not four months after a paper report has been filed with the Secretary of the Senate. Unlike House or presidential campaigns, Senate campaigns file reports on paper. This means well-heeled donors can bundle contributions in the final, critical weeks of a campaign – providing the funds necessary for last minute negative attack ads or push polls – with absolute anonymity.
