The Alabama GOP wouldn't tell MPR who the money came from. Pawlenty's office was also tight-lipped. But the mystery donor's identity will come out sooner or later, since state disclosure laws require it. A spokesman for the state party told MPR it would comply with those laws. The next filing deadline for campaign finance activity in Alabama is April 12th, according to MPR.

That's not for a while, though. So we're going to see if we can pry the information loose before then. We'll keep you posted...

Late Update: That was quick! It was Swift Boat backer Bob Perry, says Pawlenty.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
