Shady Campaign Financing?
Shining a light on the “dark money” issue

Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling opened the floodgates to unlimited and secretive political donations from corporations and other special interests, the influence of money has corrupted our democratic process. 

Campaign finance reform was enacted over the years with the goal of making campaign contributions traceable in both amount and owner. In response, we’ve seen a tremendous growth of organizations and entities that are not required to disclose their donors or their donations.

Some argue that they have a right to privately support causes and candidates while others point out that these organizations, while lawful, subvert the intent of the campaign-finance laws by allowing unlimited donations by anonymous donors.
Join us on June 16 as we discuss campaign-finance and dark money at the Manatee County Tiger Bay Club luncheon.
