SOS wins first round against outside group that helped Sandoval in 2010

Ross Miller is now 1-1 in getting third parties to disclose more about where their money is coming from in campaigns.

After losing a case involving Americans for Prosperity, the secretary of state has won a District Court judgement against The Alliance for America's Future.

The group ran ads to help Gov. Brian Sandoval in his 2010 race, but did not register as a PAC, thus keeping its donors secret. Miller protested and a court has agreed (judgment attached here).

The outfit has to pay a $110,000 fine and disclose its donors.

Or, of course, appeal.
