Beltway Happenings  
Oct. 7, organized a lunchtime "rally against foreign influence in our elections" outside the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  About 40 people participated.  This became an issue after Think Progress, a project of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, released a report on October 5 stating that "the Chamber funds its political attack campaign out of its general account, which solicits foreign funding." The report stated that, "[W]hile the Chamber will likely assert it has internal controls, foreign money is fungible, permitting the Chamber to run its unprecedented attack campaign."
