New Bill Would Try to Take Foreign Money Out of Politics

A pair of powerful senators have introduced the Preventing Adversaries Internationally from Disbursing Advertising Dollars (PAID AD) Act.

The bill, backed by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), ranking member of the committee overseeing elections, and Mark Warner (D-Va.), vice chairman of the Intelligence Committee, would amend federal election law to "prevent foreign nationals from purchasing broadcast, cable, satellite, or digital communications naming a candidate for office at any point in time, and prevents foreign governments and foreign lobbyists from buying issue ads."

Former lawmakers using campaign donation ‘slush funds’ to lobby current members

Former members of Congress are using the leftover money in their old campaign committees to funnel campaign donations to lawmakers they lobby on behalf of foreign clients.

At least 17 former members of Congress who are registered as agents of foreign governments have kept their campaign committees active since leaving Capitol Hill. At least nine of them have used those committees to funnel their supporters’ contributions to lawmakers whom they have lobbied on behalf of foreign governments, according to an investigation by the Campaign Legal Center, the Center for Responsive Politics and The Daily Beast.

What Big Money Is Doing in the Final Stretch of the Primary Election

We are one week away from the August primary election and campaign spending is in full swing, especially among the no-limits, independent expenditure PACs that are targeting Seattle City Council elections. These groups have far more money than individual candidates and they're throwing their weight around, filling mailboxes with glossy attack mailers and running six-figure TV ads.

Labor is spending big through its PACs in 2019: one union PAC just bought a pro-Andrew Lewis TV ad targeting Seattle City Council District 6 that
The Seattle Times called the largest ad purchase by an outside group in Seattle council primary history. A separate national union made a $350,000 cash contribution to its own Seattle-focused PAC on Friday.
