Joe Biden raked in record-breaking amounts of dark money in 2020 election cycle

Republicans are regularly called out by Democrats for “dark money” campaign funds, but the dirty little secret is that now-President Joe Biden received a record-breaking $145 million in “dark money” help on his way to the White House.

According to The Anchorage Daily News, Biden received a record-breaking amount of help from “dark money” donations: “Biden’s winning campaign was backed by $145 million in so-called dark money donations, a type of fundraising Democrats have decried for years. Those fundraising streams augmented Biden’s $1.5 billion haul, in itself a record for a challenger to an incumbent president.”

Democrats, who have used dark money all along while railing against Republicans, embraced “dark money” fully this election cycle.

Chairman Guy Cecil of Priorities USA, a pro-Biden PAC, blamed Trump and his supporters for forcing them to go the “dark money” route:

We weren’t going to unilaterally disarm against Trump and the right-wing forces that enabled him.

Dark money is called that because the 501 C organizations do not have to reveal the donors’ identity. According to Opensecrets.org: “Whenever money is spent in a political election with the purpose of influencing the decision of a voter and the source of the money is not disclosed, it is dark money.”

Opensecrets.org explains how non-profits can spend on political campaigns while shielding their donors:

Nonprofit, tax-exempt groups organized under section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code may engage in varying amounts of political activity. Because they are not technically political organizations, they are generally not required to disclose their donors to the public. These groups, like super PACs, cannot coordinate spending with political parties or candidates, and therefore are allowed to raise unlimited sums of money from individuals, organizations and corporations.

Most dark money is used to buy television time, radio ads, and mailers. The use of “dark money” donations in political cycles is a two-edged sword.

If a donor can remain anonymous, they are more likely to donate to causes and candidates that are socially unpopular without fear of being doxxed if they are Republican or conservative.

On the other hand, bad actors like Geoge Soros can pump even more money into US elections under the cloak of anonymity as he and his Open Society front organizations seek to remake America through mostly Democrat candidates.

How long before us idiots actually start believing Pelosi’s lies. It is OK to use dark money as long as she and her friends want it. But not the rest of us. Always breaking their own rules and coming up with the most stupid reasons — “Trump made us do it.” Reminds me of when my son was about 2 years old and I caught him hiding behind the sofa with his dog and a package of stolen cookies from the kitchen. How could I not laugh when he seriously looked right in my eyes and said “Willie do ed it, Mommy, not me.” Right on, Nancy, Biden and Harris = Trump made you take the dark money., We have to laugh. Stolen cookies.

Amen to that………..I do believe, however, tho that DEMS & RINOS have been kissing each others rump for MANY DECADES tho…..They knew back in 2007 that the illegal alien muslim CIC was born in Kenya…….They also knew that that same muslim was a “do nothing Senator” and they thought they would & could manipulate him for everything if they put him in the oval office…….

So, what can we do – NOTHING – they are protected and can not be touched. If you haven’t observed this by now then you are blind. The right is NEVER right – even if they are right. The left can not be touched by any legal methods. If Hellary isn’t a lesson in that then you have obviously not been paying attention. The election was rigged and EVERYONE knows it – even the left. It is sad but we have four years of this left and by the time it is election time the left will have this sowed up with BLM and such enemies of America, that your vote will be like voting in North Korea – ONE CANDIDATE.

WHY is it the ability of a president or anyone in congress or senate etc to raise and receive so much money for the purpose of making only 400k per year? Why would someone spend millions of dollars on senate job that makes less then 75K per year? BECAUSE it’s the power and Influence and amount of money that can be made when senators and legis’s and congress can make to be rich, that’s why!! GREED always destroys a nation from w/in and this one is NO different! “For the “LOVE” of MONEY, is the “ROOT” of all evil. 1 Tim 6:10 KJV (ONLY)
