FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS: ThinkProgress Reports That U.S. Chamber of Commerce May Use Foreign Funds For Political Ads

Not a lot of time to put this together, so this will basically present the links:
1) Liberal site ThinkProgress posted a story today showing how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce can use foreign funds (not to mention unlimited funds from undisclosed U.S. corporations) to put out political ads supporting Republican candidates.
2) Here is an interview with ThinkProgress' Faiz Shakir on MSNBC's "Hardball" this evening.
3) Politico's article.
4) Politico blog post with Chamber's response.

There is no indication at this point that the U.S. Chamber has spent any money in Arizona's several contested Congressional races.
