Dems fault Sen. Brown on campaign disclosure vote
BOSTON—Massachusetts Democrats are faulting Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown for blocking legislation that would require organizations that pour millions into campaign ads to disclose top donors and the amounts they spend.
Brown joined other Republicans Monday to block Democrats from bringing their so-called Disclose Act to the Senate floor.
Democratic Chairman John Walsh said the bill would "shine a light on money in politics."
Brown said the bill would favor unions over business groups and was not a "good faith effort at campaign finance reform."
The bill would require organizations that spend $10,000 or more during an election cycle to file a report within 24 hours identifying donors who gave $10,000 or more.
Also Tuesday, Brown's campaign again demanded Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren release her personnel records from Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania.
