Arizona Ground Zero for “Dark Money”

Just a reminder that our current Republican LD 11 team voted in favor of dark money (SB 1516) unleashing a flood of cash into Arizona elections. This bill allows among other things, the undeclared transfer of campaign fund among politicians in the Arizona Legislature and Corporation Commission. We can thank Republican Senator Smith and Republican Representatives Finchem and Leach for passing this legislation, in spite of the fact that dark money is overwhelmingly opposed by Arizona voters.  Here is an interesting report demonstrating the impact of dark money in Arizona politics.
