Dark money is toxic – no matter who spends it

Dark money is toxic – no matter who spends it

Regarding the recent op-ed published in The Valley Breeze, when I take on the dark money forces plaguing our politics, I get two standard responses. One is that I’m picking on conservative groups and the other is that I’m a hypocrite because Democrats spend more dark money.

I can’t very well be picking on conservatives if Democrats are spending more dark money. In point of fact, I don’t care who spends it – it’s toxic in politics and I want it ALL out.
