Pelosi calls on FCC to expose GOP dark money; Adelstein to join board

Today's intersection: Pelosi and Adelstein.
Leading House Democrats are calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to use its existing authority to unveil the secret donors bankrolling political TV ads. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) argue that the "true sponsor" rule means that groups must state more than just a vague name, like "Americans for a Free America" on their ads—they must identify their major donors.--Brendan Sasso, The Hill.
