WHNT CBS19: New Alabama-based PAC spends millions to support Doug Jones, draws fire
A new Alabama-based political action committee, Highway 31, is taking an active role in the Alabama special election for a U.S. Senate seat, and it’s drawn criticism for avoiding disclosure of its donors.
But the Washington, D.C.-based, nonpartisan campaign finance watchdog group the Campaign Legal Center said failing to disclose donors means voters won’t have the information they need before the election.
“This scheme cooked up, delaying full donor disclosure after Election Day is a real problem,” said the Center’s Brendan Fischer. “It has the effect of keeping voters in the dark on who’s trying to influence them.”
