Description

The Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court has led to a proliferation of political groups, thinly disguised as non-profits, that don't surface on many radar screens. They don't have to file their contributions or most of their spending the the Federal Election Commission and any accounting they deliver to the IRS comes years after the election they worked to influence. To help uncover the political agendas behind this dark money, the Sunlight Foundation created Political Ad Sleuth, a tool that helps surface information from the one place that these groups still must leave a paper trail — the TV stations where they buy their ads.
