Dark Money Spending Grows on Right and Left

In her January 27, 2020 article ‘Dark money’ in politics skyrocketed in the wake of Citizens United, Anna Massoglia describes the exponential growth of dark money being spent to influence elections on both the right and the left. As part of a series of articles published on opensecrets.org, it forms the basis for a comprehensive report on the impact of the Citizens United v. FEC ruling a decade ago.

“Over the span of the decade since Citizens United, conservative dark money groups spent more than three times the amount spent by groups on the left… but dark money has become an increasingly popular tool for political actors on the left.”
