Report: Digital Transparency Loopholes in the 2020 Elections


CLC released a report that highlights recent examples of groups exploiting gaps in campaign finance law to keep voters in the dark about online political ads. Among other examples, it points to two dark money groups, Big Tent Project Fund and Fellow Americans, that reported millions in ad spending to the Federal Election Commission, but only a small fraction of that spending is appearing in large digital platforms' public archives. These examples provide a compelling case for Congress to adopt across-the-board digital disclosure legislation.
