Congress Can Protect Midterm Elections with the Disclose Act

Author Michael Sozan urges Congress to pass the Disclose Act, bold federal legislation to make America's political system more accountable and transparent.

There are just four months to go until the November midterm elections, and the influence of dark money political donations is already casting an unusually long shadow. We have seen Eric Greitens resign as governor of Missouri in shame when his ties to secret political donors came under scrutiny. The FBI is probing whether dark money from Russia was funneled through the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump get elected. Nonprofits are getting tens of millions of dollars, some of the biggest dark money contributions to date, from individual dark money donors.
