WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican strategist Karl Rove on Tuesday denied that his party gets campaign donations from foreign sources and accused President Obama of “being hypocritical” in suggesting such a link.

Mr. Rove told ABC’s “Good Morning America” the GOP doesn’t accept donations from overseas, noting it would be illegal. He accused Mr. Obama of demanding that Republicans release donor information even though he declined to release such information in 2008.

With control of Congress hanging in the balance, the parties have been trading harsh accusations.

Mr. Rove charged Tuesday that Mr. Obama had “no problem” with keeping his donors secret, and is only protesting now because “Republicans have taken up and started doing what Democrats have been doing for years.”
