The influence of “dark money” in American politics that allows billionaires to fund political campaigns through third-party groups without disclosing their involvement will be put under the spotlight at a congressional hearing on Thursday as the Democrats crank up their sweeping new anti-corruption measure, HR1.
. . . Under the title, Our American Democracy, the committee will hear from a range of election experts as well as from civil rights activists who will illuminate the impact of such “dark money” on the lives of ordinary people.
