Kenneth P. Doyle of Bloomberg Government posted an article on August 2, 2019 titled, “Shadow of Dark Money Grows as 2020 Groups Shun Donor Disclosure.” Now, Nancy Pelosi and her cohort Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York are bragging to the press they are out to end all the “dark money” that is driving campaigns as they seek Campaign Finance Reform.
But apparently, they consider their Democrat co-hort billionaire Michael Bloomberg to be exempt from their criticism.
“Dark money is a vehicle for wealthy donors and special interests to curry favor without accountability,” said Michael Beckel of the nonprofit watchdog Issue One. “Voters don’t know where the money is coming from, but the candidates often do.”
In fairness, Bloomberg donations are not “dark.” He is unabashedly rushing into the Democratic gap and hoping to buy a nomination with his billions. However, the fact that Pelosi attempts to appear the champion of “Campaign Reform” while at the same time propping up Bloomberg is laughable and incredibly hypocritical.
Pelosi and the Democratic National Committee pulled every primary string possible to get Hillary Clinton nominated. Once a candidate for President, Clinton benefited from $200 million of “dark” money donated by Priorities USA, a group that is funded mostly by undisclosed donations.
Watch the video to see who Bloomberg was happy to receive support from while mayor of New York City. Hint – he’s facing life in prison now.
