I'd never heard the term 'Dark Money', until I heard journalist and investigative reporter Jane Mayer give an interview on CBC Radio talking about her recent book Dark Money.
I was a little hesitant to write this post, because well it's not only disturbing but it's depressing. But I felt compelled to, because I believe it is an important story that needs to be told.
The New York Times review of this book is extensive and gives a great overview of just what Mayer's book is about and how the American electoral system is so corrupt and insidiously influenced by the top 1% of the population who have historically had the money and power to continue influence elections.
