Democrats have long been decrying the presence of anonymous campaign contributions as a corrupting force in politics, but that hasn’t stopped them from being the beneficiaries of record amounts of “dark money donations” during the 2020 presidential race.
A new report that was published by Bloomberg News reveals that Biden brought in a staggering $145 million in donations from anonymous donors to outside groups that backed him in the election.
For instance, Priorities USA Action Fund, one of the most prominent Democratic super PACs supporting Biden, used $26 million in funds originally donated to its nonprofit arm, called Priorities USA, to back the then-candidate, according to Bloomberg. The donors of that money do not need to be disclosed.
Critics of dark money, which obscures the source of the funds, argue that voters should know who’s funding political advertisements and campaigns. The Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan group, has called it a “serious threat to our democracy,” and Issue One, another nonpartisan group that aims to reduce the influence of money in politics, has called it “the most toxic force in politics.”
Although Democrats have previously introduced legislation to crack down on dark money donations, it did not stop them from accepting anonymous donations themselves as they fought to defeat Trump.
“We weren’t going to unilaterally disarm against Trump and the right-wing forces that enabled him,” Guy Cecil, the chairman of Priorities USA, told Bloomberg
If President Trump had been the one to both do and say this, you can guarantee the radical left both in Congress and the mainstream media would have had a meltdown of biblical proportions.
This just goes to show you how unprincipled Democrats have become. They don’t even buy into their own ideology in a practical manner. They will do whatever it takes to win. Cheat. Lie. Steal. Use unsavory and likely corrupt means of taking in money.
You name it, they’ll do it.
