ECU Praises Tester, Wyden CRA to Overturn IRS Dark Money Rule

Sep 25, 2018

End Citizens United Action Fund President Tiffany Muller released the following statement praising Senators Tester and Wyden for introducing a Congressional Review Act aimed at overturning the I.R.S’s ruling that eliminates disclosure requirements for political nonprofits:

“The IRS’s decision to give mega-donors and Big Money special interests more secrecy with their political spending goes against what the majority of Americans want. Voters deserve to know who’s behind the seemingly unlimited money that’s trying to influence their vote and their government. ECU thanks Senators Tester and Wyden for their leadership, and Congress should pass this CRA immediately. It would shine a much-needed light on political nonprofits that spend hundreds of millions of dollars every election cycle in the shadows.”
