Clear Channel Refuses to Disclose which one (of the 5) Billionaire Romney backers paid for Voter Intimidation Ads

Chicago Tribune – Ohio voter fraud billboards to come down, sponsor stays unnamed http://touch.chicagotribune.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-72983359/

CLEVELAND (Reuters) – More than 140 billboards in Ohio and Wisconsin warning of the criminal consequences of voter fraud will be taken down starting on Monday after the sponsor chose to remove them rather than reveal its identity, the billboard owner said. The billboards, which show a large judge’s gavel and read “Voter Fraud is a felony – up to 3 ½ years and a $10,000 fine,” went up primarily in low-income minority neighborhoods in early October, just weeks before the November 6 elections, and were immediately criticized by voter rights groups as an attempt to intimidate minority voters. The sponsor was not identified on the billboards owned by Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings Inc. The company said this was a violation of its policy against anonymous political ads.

Funny how that policy wasn’t enforced until they were challenged on it. Well, it would be if you didn’t know how Clear Channel is run, if you knew that, this would be par for the course.
