Dark Money Political Donations
“Politicians should be required to disclose the information of any of their donors who give more than $10,000, require shell companies spending money on elections to disclose their owners, and mandate that election ads list their sponsor’s major contributors,” details a commentator.
One post says, “Lobbying is literally legal bribery.” How? “They (politicians) don’t get advice. They get persuaded to allow companies to profit despite the effect it has on people, the ones they are supposed to be representing,” explains a user.
