As @chrisgeidner breaks this news: Reminder: Crossroads GPS ranks as the No. 2 top-spending #darkmoney group since #CitizensUnited. It told the #FEC it spent ~$110M on political ads between January 2010 & December 2016 bit.ly/2xd1xud
A top Crossroads GPS official once said: “Some donors didn’t want to be disclosed. They were more comfortable giving to a (c)(4), and so we created one.” n.pr/2NUCC7W via @peteroverby @nprpolitics
.@IssueOneReform combed through public records and identified 10 donors to Crossroads GPS. These donors accounted for just 2% of the $349M Crossroads GPS raised between June 2010 & December 2016 bit.ly/2xd1xud

More than $800M has been spent in elections by #darkmoney groups since #CitizensUnited per @OpenSecretsDC

Did you know that the top 15 groups account for 75% of this spending?

A new @IssueOneReform report examines these 15 major dark money groups

issueone.org/dark-money/
Fact: Most of the top #darkmoney groups are attack dogs. For 14 of the top 15 groups, more than 50% of their spending on ads overtly calling for the election or defeat of candidates from 2010 to 2016 was negative. For 6 groups, more than 90% was negative bit.ly/2QnsXFB
Top among these #darkmoney groups was the US Chamber of Commerce, which reported spending ~$130M on political ads to the #FEC between 2010 and 2016. That’s about $1 of every $6 spent on political ads by all dark money groups during this time. bit.ly/2QnsXFB
