Do as Democrats say, not as they do.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared at a Families USA meeting today to tout a Democrat proposal to oust so-called “dark money” from politics.
Pelosi said a major point of the Democrats’ “For the People” agenda is to “reduce the cost of dark, special interest money in politics,” triggering applause.
Oblivious of the irony, she thanked “grassroots” groups for helping Democrats to “advance” legislation.
According to Pro Publica, Families USA is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization.
OpenSecrets.org labels (c)4 groups as “dark money”:
Politically active nonprofits – principally 501(c)(4)s and 501(c)(6)s – have become a major force in federal elections over the last three cycles. The term “dark money” is often applied to this category of political spender because these groups do not have to disclose the sources of their funding – though a minority do disclose some or all of their donors, by choice or in response to specific circumstances.
