Axelrod - 'Chamber Must Prove Foreign Money Allegations False'

That is not how this works. If you have a rather explosive charge against someone/something it is on you to offer something (anything) more then a baseless allegation as proof. It is also ironic given the level of undisclosed and foreign finances used by Obama during his presidential campaign.

"White House senior adviser David Axelrod said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has the burden of proving false the charge by Democrats that the business group is funneling foreign money to Republican campaigns.

Axelrod was pressed by CBS’s Bob Schieffer on Sunday for evidence that the foreign campaign contributions benefiting the GOP is more than “peanuts.”

“Do you have any evidence that it’s not, Bob?” Axelrod said on “Face the Nation.” “The fact is that the Chamber has asserted that, but they won’t release any information about where their campaign money is coming from. And that’s at the core of the problem.”

A new ad by the Democratic National Committee accuses the Chamber of “benefiting from secret foreign money” and said that the business group and Republican operatives are “stealing our democracy.”
