Hillary’s New ‘Dark Money’ Group Allowed To Hide Donors From The Public
Hillary’s New ‘Dark Money’ Group Allowed To Hide Donors From The Public by Peter Hasson.
Hillary Clinton, whose failed presidential campaign was hampered by pay-for-play allegations, launched a “dark money” political organization on Monday that is exactly the kind of operation she promised to oppose as president.
Clinton’s new organization, Onward Together, is registered as a 501(c)4 “social welfare” organization, according to the group’s donation page.
Onward Together’s 501(c)4 status means it will not have to disclose its donors to the public.
Clinton, who is thought to be weighing a potential third presidential campaign, railed against “dark money” in her unsuccessful White House bid last year.
In the final presidential debate, Clinton promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would “say no to Citizens United, a decision that has undermined the election system in our country because of the way it permits dark, unaccountable money to come into our electoral system.”
Onward Together began soliciting donations immediately upon its launch. The group will partner up with a number of left-wing organizations, including anti-Trump group Indivisible — whose leadership includes several former Clinton staffers — and Color of Change, a group supported by left-wing billionaire George Soros.
A link emailed to supporters of Onward Together on Monday encouraged them to “chip in” and give to the organization.
“In recent months, we’ve seen what’s possible when people stand up for a fairer, big-hearted, more inclusive America,” the website states. “Chip in today to help Onward Together support the people and organizations championing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.”
