Exposing the operatives behind the outside groups that spent hundreds of millions of dollars to influence the midterm elections.
In January 2010, the Supreme Court changed the landscape of money and politics in the Citizens United Supreme Court case. The Super PACs sleuth group is shining a light on what that new landscape actually looks like.
Corporations and unions can now spend unlimited amounts of money right up until Election Day, so long as they don’t coordinate with candidates. The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has yet to adopt final rules that will allow it to track this flood of money. The Sunlight Foundation has compiled a list of what we call Super PACs -- those organizations that declared their intention to take unlimited donations from any source to fund political activities -- and we’re using Little Sis as a platform to help record who’s behind them.
