CLC Analysis: FEC Rule Kept As Much As $769 Million In Political Spending In The Dark


On August 3, a DC District Court struck down an FEC rule that allowed dark money groups running ads expressly advocating for or against candidates - called “independent expenditures” - to keep their donors secret. According to CLC’s analysis, the FEC’s now vacated rule allowed as much as $769 million in dark money to flow into federal elections since 2010.
