Our Plan to End Dark Money

Dark money eliminates transparency to eliminate accountability. With dark money, we don’t know who these donors are, where they’re from, or what they want. They are purposefully hijacking our democracy.

Here’s how we’re going to do it:

  1. Initiate civil and criminal investigations under RSMo. 407.040 and 407.020 against dark money organizations purposefully evading Missouri’s campaign finance laws.
  2. Require that dark money organizations follow Missouri’s nonprofit registration requirements under RSMo. 407.472.
  3. Bring dark money organizations to court to require transparency and prevent them from illegally buying our government under RSMo. 407.090 and 407.100.
  4. Issue emergency orders as needed to stop illegal dark money activity under RSMo. 407.095.
  5. Enforce Missouri’s constitutional prohibition of dark money in Article VIII.23.3(7) and Article VIII.23.3(14).
  6. Partner with local prosecutors, the Missouri Ethics Commission, the FBI, and the IRS to prevent foreign powers from buying our elections.
  7. Prosecute public corruption in conjunction with the State Auditor.
  8. Advocate in the legislature to strengthen our Sunshine Law and pass the End Dark Money Act.
  9. Protect the integrity of our elections by ending partisan gerrymandering, prohibiting illegal electoral interference, and sending a clear message that Missouri is no longer for sale.
  10. As a campaign, we are not taking dark money, only transparent donations from people like you.
