Inside Karl Rove's Secretive Effort to Defeat Obama's Re-Election With Help of Billionaire Donors

Karl Rove, the man once known as "Bush's Brain," has helped found two groups that plan to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for television, radio and online attacks ads to defeat President Obama and restore Republican control of Washington this November. The groups: American Crossroads, whose donors are public, and Crossroads GPS, a so-called "social welfare" organization whose donors are anonymous; operate out of the same offices, share many of the same staff, and pay millions to air similar attack ads. Paul Barrett, assistant managing editor at Bloomberg Businessweek joins Democracy Now to discuss his article published today called "Karl Rove: He's Back, Big Time."
