527 redux 

Remember how everyone cried a few months ago about coordination of SwiftVets and someone with a loose connection to the Bush campaign? Think they'll raise any questions about this?

Republicans are criticizing House Minority Leader Matt Entenza for donating $300,000 to a "527" political group which spent hundreds of thousands of dollars turning out young Democratic voters.

State Republican Party Chairman Ron Eibensteiner said Thursday that the donation "looks extremely suspicious" and could be a violation of campaign laws that prohibit coordination and earmarking of funds from individuals through 527s and back to campaigns.
