US Democrats blaming Indian business money
Yet, this unlikely scenario has been one of the loudest campaign complaints of the Democratic Party in recent weeks, as it prepares for what election observers predict will be major losses in both the US Senate and the House of Representatives.
Democrats have repeatedly attacked the US Chamber of Commerce for its alleged ties to foreign donors. On the campaign trail, US President Barack Obama himself has referred to the possibility that foreign companies could be funding Republican candidates indirectly, through their donations to the Chamber. US law prohibits soliciting or accepting donations from foreign nationals or entities for election activity.
The Chamber is one of several groups on both sides of the political spectrum that help election campaigns at the federal and state level from outside, spending money on advertisements and other activities in support of their preferred candidates. While there are some instances of local chapters of the Chamber supporting Democrats, the group mostly supports Republicans, who are perceived as being more pro-business. Groups like the Chamber, which are called Section 501(c)(6) organisations, are not required to disclose their donors.
