Commentary: When the Courts Shine Light on ‘Dark Money’

In some cases, the sources of what is called political “dark money” are disclosed because of action in the courts, Ciara Torres-Spelliscy writes in a commentary published at the Brennan Center for Justice website.

Among the examples cited by Torres-Spelliscy are sunlight on two dark money groups that had concealed spending sources for two California ballot initiatives; sources of money for a dark money group that were disclosed after a judge’s order in Montana; and a lawsuit settlement in New York that led a semiconductor company to agree to disclose its political spending.

Torres-Spelliscy’s views are her own. The Brennan Center is a Justice at Stake partner organization.
