Compliance from Americans for Job Security of Nevada came only after a rare Sunday order by the California Supreme Court. The announcement was made at 9 a.m. Monday by the state Fair Political Practices Commission.
The group supports an anti-union ballot measure, Prop. 32, and seeks the defeat of Prop. 30, Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed sales tax hike.
According to reports, the disclosure raises more questions than answers, because the group does not have to identify individual donors under federal law.
