The story "Karl Rove and LI race: Group founded by GOP strategist aids Altschuler" [News, Sept. 19] is infuriating.

His nonprofit political action committee Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies receives donations from corporations and the very rich, who remain anonymous. It is peppering TV with his ads, half-truths or outright lies, trying to get his people elected.

These antics were used in the George W. Bush-John Kerry campaign in 2004, by the tea party in 2010, and now he's back again disrupting our democracy.

Ignore these ads!
