  •  The question is why don't people want their names (2+ / 0-)

    known for a contribution?  

    When I read the program at the opera or the ballet, there are pages and pages of donor names, grouped by how much they donated.  When I donate on behalf of my family members as a Christmas gift the organization publishes their names.  

    When I make a political donation I don't attempt to hide it - if I was ashamed I wouldn't do it.  

    The people who don't want their names known are trying to hide something - the Kochs and their kind don't want you to know they are behind these people and policies that hurt most of us.  All political donations should be public.

    •  RadGal - there are lots of reasons that people (0+ / 0-)

      want to support causes in confidence. The most common is retaliation from their employers. In many occupations people work hard at being politically neutral so as not to offend customers, suppliers, colleagues, bosses and investors.
