Schumer-Tied PAC Received $1.7 Million From Dark Money Group

A political action committee linked to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) has received $1.7 million from a liberal dark money group for shared staff and office space since 2015, tax and Federal Election Commission forms show.

Schumer, who has said that dark money is "casting a shadow over our political process," has condemned groups on the right that do not disclose their funders. He also demanded one right-leaning organization release a list of its donors, saying the public "deserves to know who is funding" campaigns against Democrats.

Despite the condemnation of dark money groups, the Schumer-linked Senate Majority PAC, which works to elect Democrats in the Senate, is closely affiliated with Majority Forward, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that does not disclose its funders.

Schumer and other Democrats have chastised Republican dark money groups such as the Judicial Crisis Network, a right-leaning organization. Schumer and Democrat senators earlier this year demanded JCN make public the names of individuals who have given the group more than $10,000 since 2017.

Thanks mccain. Your campaign finance reform actually made it worse...
Republican are rubber, democrats are glue whatever ever they say bounces off of republicans and sticks to democrats. Remember the opposite principle when dealing with dems..they lie and deflect blame to others what they themselves are DOING, DONE OR DID
