It is election time and the American people will probably vote for one stupidity or another……and in reality they are voting for dark money from dark money donors…..in other words your vote is just a formality to justify the control.
Every year more and more dark money flows into the coffers of the corrupt politicians……
It is time for the dark money monster to be slain….and slain for good….
More than $2 billion dollars. That’s how much dark money eclipsed the 2020 elections, OpenSecrets estimates– an increase of over $1.8 billion from just ten years prior.
The 2010 Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision devastatingly altered U.S. campaigns and elections. By likening political spending groups to individual Americans entitled to First Amendment rights, Super PAC groups have flourished, offering a quick and easy way for donors to pour money into political advocacy while shielding their identities.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) first introduced the Democracy Is Strengthened by Casting Light On Spending in Elections (DISCLOSE) Act twelve years ago – hoping to at least cast light on the people behind booming political spending. (Even Justice Antonin Scalia went on record stressing the value of transparency and disclosure: “For my part, I do not look forward to a society which, thanks to the Supreme Court, campaigns anonymously . . . hidden from public scrutiny and protected from the accountability of criticism. This does not resemble the Home of the Brave.”)
The bill would require advocacy groups to publicly disclose the contributions they receive worth ten thousand dollars or more – and ban foreign participation in domestic political advocacy.
It’s Time to Do Away With Dark Money
Why cannot the American voter see just how corrupted our political system has become?
Plus this is just a silly bill….asking people taking the dark money to ride the system of dark money is but definition laughable.
Please pay attention….

Thanx John I appreciate your help chuq
I suppose there has always been Dark Money behind elections, ever since the first election in history. We just get to find out about some of it in the modern world.
Best wishes, Pete.
