Dark Money Donations: Swaying our Elections?

How does dark money influence US politics? It’s March 2021, and Americans are divided. My guest today is Karl Evers-Hillstrom, a money-in-politics reporter for OpenSecrets.org, an organization describing themselves as the most comprehensive, nonpartisan money-in-politics resource around. Karl has been part of the team since October 2018 with a specific focus in the area of dark money. In this episode we discuss how dark swayed our 2020 elections, why the amount of dark money donations is exponentially growing, reasons for some billionaires and corporations to disguise their political donations, and more. Whether you agree or disagree with today’s guest, I invite you to join us with an open mind as we work to heal the division on dark money influence in US politics.
