Senate Republicans filibustered the DISCLOSE Act, effectively killing the bill that would have forced independent groups to release the names of donors who contribute more than $10,000 to a political campaign.  At the same time, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is reportedly dumping $5 million into a Super PAC that supports Republican Eric Cantor.  Why is a billionaire investing so much money into a Congressional race?  Ed talks to Tom Perriello, Former Congressman from Virginia, now the President and C-E-O of The Center For American Progress Action Fund.Jul.17.2012
