The Conservative Playbook for Keeping ‘Dark Money’ Dark

Robert Faturechi, ProPublica

How do you stop states and cities from forcing more disclosure of so-called dark money in politics? Get the debate to focus on an "average Joe," not a wealthy person. Find examples of "inconsequential donation amounts." Point out that naming donors would be a threat to "innocents," including their children, families and co-workers.

And never call it dark money. "Private giving" sounds better.
