The Leader Of A PAC

No I am not nostalgic for the early ’60’s tunes…..

WE have Dark Matter….dark Energy….and Dark Money.

Ever thought about running a political campaign?

If so you need an education on where the real money lies for such an endeavor…..Dark Money.

money donated to politically active nonprofit organizations or anonymous corporate entities, which spend this money to influence political campaigns or other special interests but are not required to reveal their donors.

Now that you have an idea what it is….you will need a course of action to get into the field……and I can help…….

Dark Money refers to political spending meant to influence the decision of a voter, where the donor is not disclosed and the source of the money is unknown. Depending upon the circumstances, Dark Money can refer to funds spent by a political nonprofit or a super PAC. Here’s how:

  • Political nonprofits are under no legal obligation to disclose their donors. When they choose not to, they are considered Dark Money groups.
  • Super PACs can also be considered Dark Money groups in certain situations. While these organizations are legally required to disclose their donors, they can accept unlimited contributions from political non-profits and “shell” corporations who may not have disclosed their donors, in these cases they are considered Dark Money groups.

Now you have a working knowledge of dark money and how it is used….so go out and have fun with your newly acquired knowledge…..see just how sleazy you can be.

  1. We can’t begin to believe anything will be fixed until the avenues of dark money are removed. For all we know, dark money is one of the vehicles of influence used by foreign powers during our elections. It should be that if money is used for anything related to a campaign, the source must be identified….. no loopholes. How hard is that?

    1. It is a good plan but we both know that money talks and it will be with us until they decide that elections are publicly financed. chuq

  2. ‘Tis an easy matter to influence voters for such as those who wish to do so, as is clear from your discussion. But, then, ’tis the simplest thing in the world to fool those who already believe in the illusion they have an actual say in anything to do with politics, simply because they’re allowed to vote. They already behave as programmed ‘bots, because they program themselves, by belief, which is the enemy of knowledge…. You cannot achieve a rational end when beginning from irrational, or unreal premises; reality doesn’t work that way.
