Our November 2017 Endorsed Candidates and the Dark Money They Battle

posted in: NPE Action Newsletters | 0

 

Pro-public education candidates are up against powerful dark money. Billionaire donors give to non-profits, which do not have to disclose donations. These non-profits then funnel money to PACs and super PACs. The donor to the PAC is listed as the non-profit, thereby hiding the identity of the givers.

Voters in local elections never know that the ads they see are financed mostly by out of state billionaires. If those donors then make a profit once the candidate is elected, the connection is hidden.

So-called education reformers are masters of this game. One of the worst offenders, Education Reform Now Advocacy,  is an arm of DFER. Please read and share this article about them here​.
