And they call Republicans the crooks!

It has just been learned that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are, at this very moment, using nearly $20 million which has been disguised as donor cash taken from dark money groups to fund their midterm elections.

Fox News discovered that the massive amount of money has been funneled into the Senate Majority and House Majority PACs which are linked to Schumer and Pelosi. Fox further explained that these PACs bankroll Senate and House Democrats who fight against dark money’s political influence.

One of the dark money groups is Majority Forward, a non-profit that does NOT reveal who their donors are on any tax forms. Majority Forward has dished out nearly $15 million to Democrats in hopes that they will win the midterm elections.

The Senate Majority PAC accepted all of the money offered to them by Majority Forward making them the biggest non-profit who has donated money to them.

When Fox News reached out to Majority Forward they defended their donations to Democrats and smeared Republicans.

A spokesperson for Majority Forward slammed Republicans and said, “corporate Republicans are the only ones standing in the way of increasing transparency and making progress on campaign finance reform.”

“We look forward to the day when Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans stop blocking these badly needed reforms but until then, we will continue to play by the rules of the current system and level the playing field for Democrats in the face of enormous corporate special interest spending on the other side,” they added.
