Secretive, dirty money is influencing Arizona elections
and corrupting our democracy.
GET DIRTY MONEY OUT OF ARIZONA ELECTIONS.
WHAT IS DIRTY MONEY
Dirty Money, or Dark Money, means political spending when the original source remains secret. The corporations and wealthy individuals spending Dirty Money remain hidden from the voters while they try to manipulate elections.
Outlaw Dirty Money
Political spending is classified as dirty money when the original source remains anonymous to the public. Corporations and wealthy individuals spending millions of dollars remain hidden from voters while they attempt to manipulate elections.
Arizona is the point of the spear for dirty money in the United States. Since 2010, based on the total percentage of campaign spending, Arizona has had the largest amount of secretly funded political advertising in the country. Dirty money has been more successful in Arizona as well. In 2014, candidates with backing from anonymous sources won every statewide office but one! Dirty Money works and we need to stop it now.
How does Dirty Money directly affect you? Recently we learned that in 2014 APS spent $10.7 million dollars in secret funds to elect two members of the rate setting Corporation Commission. Those Commissioners then voted for a $95 million dollar per year electric rate price increase. Public education, the environment and social services are all targets of dirty money. What will be next?
