Arizona Considering “Dirty Money” Ban

AUBURN, AL- Arizona has become a hotbed for “dark money” in recent years. Now, a campaign aimed at what they are calling “dirty money” is underway with the hopes of requiring more disclosure.

According to The Republic, $27.3 million was spent in the 2014 election by outside groups- with $12 million being spent in the governor’s race alone. Their research shows that 46% of that money was “dark money” from groups that do not disclose their donors.

Now, former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard is pushing an initiative called Outlaw Dirty Money to amend the state Constitution to require full donor disclosure to organizations that engage in political campaigns.

Currently, the group is aiming to collect the 300,000 signatures needed to get on the ballot.
