Dirty Election Money

Voters constantly complain about dirty elections – and they should. The overwhelming perpetrators of this evil are the Dark Money, hidden contributor Political Committees that, unlike candidates, have no contribution limit and can conceal donors from the public. These committees shuffle money from one to another, attack candidates with lies & innuendos and hide behind pretty-sounding names like “Sunshine State Forever.” I, and many other candidates, have felt the sting of these shameful tactics. While in the Legislature, I pushed to make the process more transparent but was opposed by both political parties. Voters should be aware of this insidious practice and reject their hidden motives.
