Clinton’s Dark Money Hypocrisy

- August 4, 2015

CLINTON BASHES DARK, UNACCOUNTABLE MONEY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL

Clinton: "[W]e've Got To Get All This Dark, Unaccountable Money Out Of Our Political System." CLINTON: "And we've got to get all this dark, unaccountable money out of our political system. This is really a problem with the Supreme Court because they've made two very bad decisions-The Buckley decision and The Citizens United Decision, so people say, what can you do about it? Well, first of all, we have to see everything we can possibly get done by law, we have to appoint Supreme Court Justices who will begin to reverse the pernicious effects of these decisions and, if necessary, we have to have a constitutional amendment because if we let this go too long, the corruption will be worse than the Robber Barons. Because, as it is right now, we have no enforcement of our election-our finance laws in Washington because the Federal Elections Commission is divided 3 Republicans 3 Democrats and so they can't make a decision. The Republicans are pushing up against the line, if not going over the line. Basically using their so-called Super PACs to be part of their campaign. And then you've got these phony non-profits, that are advocating for candidates and they don't even have to tell you where the money's from." (Hillary Clinton, Speech At House Party, Ottumwa, IA, 7/7/15)

However, Clinton's Super PAC Accepted A "Seven-Figure Check" From A "Pair Of Dark Money Groups"

A Super PAC, "Financed By A Pair Of Dark Money Groups Wrote A Seven-Figure Check To Hillary Clinton's Super PAC In June, Infusing A Key Pro-Clinton Outfit With Money Whose Sources Are Virtually Untraceable." "A Democrat-aligned super PAC financed by a pair of dark money groups wrote a seven-figure check to Hillary Clinton's super PAC in June, infusing a key pro-Clinton outfit with money whose sources are virtually untraceable." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)

  • The Washington Free Beacon Headline: "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC" (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)

The Democratic Super PAC, "Fair Share Action (FSA) Donated $1 Million To Pro-Clinton Super PAC Priorities USA Action In Late June…" "Fair Share Action (FSA) donated $1 million to pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA Action in late June, one of eight million-dollar contributions the pro-Clinton group has received so far this year from various sources." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)

  • "FSA Also Gave $5,000 To Another Pro-Clinton Super PAC In April." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)

"The Source Of FSA's Money Is Nearly Impossible To Trace." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)

FSA Has Only Received Two Contributions This Year, Both From Dark Money Groups, Including Fair Share, Inc. And Environment America. "It's received just two contributions this year: $300,000 from Fair Share Inc., its 501(c)(4) dark money affiliate, and $800,000 from another dark money group called Environment America." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)

  • "Neither Environment America Nor Fair Share Disclose Their Individual Donors, Making It Difficult To Know Who Exactly Is Bankrolling Their Large Contributions To Priorities." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)
  • "Neither Organization Returned A Request For Information On Their Finances." (Lachlan Markay, "Dark Money Floods Into Hillary Super PAC," The Washington Free Beacon, 8/4/15)
