“Donors to dark-money groups mostly hidden despite court ruling”


A series of court orders in September appeared poised to force so-called dark-money groups — which raise and spend unlimited sums from anonymous donors — to reveal some of their funders for the first time.

But a month later, those donors are mostly still out of sight, and they could remain hidden as the dispute awaits a possible hearing at the Supreme Court.

A major disclosure deadline passed Monday with few political nonprofits unveiling any donors, even after a court threw out a years-old regulation that let the groups keep their funding sources private — and after the Federal Election Commission told the organizations to reveal anyone who gave money after the ruling for political spending at the end of September.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
