The very rich are trying to buy elections secretly and this certainly jeopardizes our democracy as an obscene amount of undisclosed contributions (aka Dark Money) not only buys elections it buys influence over the candidates so elected. The Sunlight Foundation does its best to keep track of where it comes from and where it goes, which is mostly to Republicans. Take a look, but it isn't pretty. Hopefully TPP's votes today will help cost some of these dark donors some big bucks. HT to Dispatches from the Culture Wars.
