Unions Get a Free Pass?

See here. A reader smart on campaign-finance maters comments: “BCRA, now that we know it is constitutional (!) put a big dent in union activity related to federal candidates, but there’s still a lot of states where more transparency would be welcome, and of course in member communications and mobilization for voter registration and get out the vote. I do believe, however, that at some point disclosure becomes too draconian. I might even sympathize with unions more here, were it not for the monthly – almost weekly news items regarding somebody’s malfeasance with some union account or another. “
