"Happy birthday, corporate shills!" reads the purple frosting atop the giant birthday cake delivered to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Friday.

About two dozen representatives from advocacy organizations, including the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, Public Citizen, Business Ethics Network and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington rallied near the White House today to speak out against the Republican-leaning business group's refusal to disclose the donors behind its election advertising.

They threw a tongue-in-cheek birthday party for the Chamber, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and delivered 30,000 petitions on "birthday cards" to the group's D.C. office.
