Representatives of three of the most experienced money-in-politics organizations in Washington – the Center for Responsive Politics, the Sunlight Foundation and the Center for Public Integrity – will explain the new campaign finance landscape in the wake of the landmark Citizens United
decision. They’ll cover what to look for when examining super PACs as well as more mysterious 501(c) groups that don’t disclose their donors (Colbert calls these “spooky PACs”). They’ll demonstrate valuable tools and data sources and suggest reporting techniques and story ideas for the general election.
