Law Newz: Hillary Clinton Draws Fire for Allowing Anonymous Donations to New Group
The Campaign Legal Center (CLC), a non-partisan group that tackles election law issues, called Clinton out on her new venture’s potential fundraising. Larry Noble, the senior director of regulatory reform programs and general counsel for the CLC, said in a statement obtained by LawNewz.com, “It is disappointing that Sec. Hillary Clinton – who ran on a platform to “end secret, unaccountable money in politics” – would break the spirit of her own promise by starting a new dark money group to allow her to raise unlimited funds from secret donors.”
Noble said that voters should know where politicians are getting their money in order to know if they’re answering to the masses or wealthy individuals. “Clinton’s group is following a dangerous path that could further open the floodgates to even more unaccountable money in politics,” he said.
