DNC Panel Rejects Ban on “Dark Money” Campaign Contributions

HeadlineSep 09, 2022

A Democratic National Committee panel has rejected a proposal to ban dark money funding “during any and all Democratic primary elections.” The resolution, authored by Nevada Democratic Party Chair Judith Whitmer, would have also established procedures to investigate dark money groups and discipline DNC members for accepting donations from anonymous donors. The DNC’s rejection of a ban comes after dark money flooded Democratic primary races across the country this year, targeting progressive candidates seeking to challenge Democratic incumbents.
