Super PACs with Delayed Disclosure

Last updated: October 16, 2018


Super PACs, which can raise and spend unlimited sums of money in elections, are supposed to regularly disclose their funders. But the reporting schedule allows some of them to begin spending money to influence elections before they reveal their funding. An analysis by Politico and ProPublica of Federal Election Commission data found more than 60 super PACs that have managed to spend money to influence races and postpone telling voters who funded them.
