From the Leonard Lopate Show on WNYC radio in New York comes an exploration of “Dark Money and Big Data,” or concerns about undisclosed campaign contributions funneled through so-called “social welfare” tax-exempt 501c4 non-profits. Guests are Bradley Smith, the Chairman and Co-Founder of the Center for Competitive Politics; Adam Rappaport, the Chief Counsel of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington; and Kim Barker, a reporter for ProPublica. Here’s the podcast.
