New Filings Shed Light on Hundreds of Millions in Dark Money Spending

by - November 21, 2013

Using data that we've already input, we're also unveiling a new, dynamic visualization that shows how a large and growing amount of anonymous money has flowed through an expanding network of nonprofits and into elections around the country.   The visualization -- produced with the help of designer and data journalist Anna Flagg -- can be found on the grants over time page of the political nonprofits section. Though this data was drawn from filings submitted to both the IRS and the FEC, it was largely created by CRP and does not exist anywhere else, including the agencies charged with overseeing the activities of politically active nonprofits.   The visualization focuses on the top 10 most politicized nonprofits, tracking the churn of money into and out of each group as it moves from anonymous donors to its ultimate destination as spending reported to the FEC. (Keep in mind it does not yet include any of the 2012 data that has been coming in over the last week.)
