Description

With our ongoing investigation of "dark money" in politics, OpenSecrets Blog (run by the Center for Responsive Politics) has repeatedly broken new ground in revealing the cash pipeline of some of the groups that have been most active trying to influence elections and national policy. These groups -- tax-exempt nonprofits that don't have to reveal their funding sources -- spent more than $300 million in the 2012 elections, mostly on TV ads, and have continued to spend to set the stage for the next election cycle. No other news organization has done more to shine light on these secretive groups that use confusion and ambiguity in both tax law and election law to spend big money in elections around the country.
