State panel outlaws ‘dark money’ in California political campaigns

The state’s campaign finance watchdog agency on Thursday adopted new requirements that nonprofit groups that contribute through a federal political action committee to support or oppose ballot measures or candidates in California must disclose their donors.

“The amendment to this regulation clarifies that so-called ‘dark money,’ originating from nonprofit or other organizations whose donors are not disclosed, is not permitted in California elections,” said Hyla P. Wagner, general counsel for the state Fair Political Practices Commission in a report to the panel.

While I generally support open disclosure laws, the ability to be anonymous is currently the law of the land. Good luck with that.

    I always figured the best campaign finance reform would be that any actual person eligible to vote could contribute as much as they wanted, personally. Their name and $$$ figure would go on the donor list when the check/money gets deposited. Anything more than $100 and the donor gets put on the PUBLIC list. No other “special interest” corporation, organization, or “non-people” entity could donate to a candidate campaign.
