Tons of Election Money: PAC, Super PAC & Dark Money

Most-Important Concept 
(For Ultra Rich)

This post was gathered from the well-known Bill Moyers Report. Good stuff.

This map from the Investigative Reporters and Editors organization will point you to your state’s campaign finance site. 

If it’s federal data you want, you can’t go wrong with this from Open Secrets.org, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). 

Everything you could possibly want to know about congressional and presidential campaignsPACs and super PACs, and dark-money nonprofit groups is just a few clicks away.

Then there is the official government site for all Federal candidates here from FEC.gov. At that site, click on Campaign Finance Disclosure Portal, then the 2014 House and Senate Elections link, and then the House and Senate map. On that map, click on your state and then your local district. From there you can see each candidate and how much money they have, who is giving, and how much – it is a real eye-opener and great research tool.
