Description

After accepting mega donations from Soros et al, now MoveOn.org institutes a contribution limit. This voluntary limit is still 2.5 times the legal limit allowed for Presidential campaigns. MoveOn.org, one of the best-financed of the independent, liberal and controversial political groups spending millions to defeat President Bush, is shifting its fund-raising and campaign strategy. The group said yesterday it will stop taking large donations from rich backers and instead build a more conventional political action committee with smaller donations. MoveOn says it now hopes to raise $50 million, which would make it the biggest PAC ever, and spend the money on anti-Bush TV ads, a get-out-the-vote effort and direct contributions to Kerry, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, as well as congressional and state candidates, said MoveOn executive director Eli Pariser
