MSNBC Features New Demos / US PIRG Study On Super PACs
The millions of dollars raised and spent by SuperPACs in the 2012 election have created a kind of parallel campaign. Demos and U.S. PIRG have released a new report, "Auctioning Democracy: The Rise of Super PACS and the 2012 Election," analyzing 2010-2011 Federal Election Commission data on on these court-related entities.
"Auctioning Democracy" also contains a gallery of infographics illustrating where these outlandish contributions to SuperPACs come from and how many of them are from untraceable, unaccountable donors.
Demos is working to reduce both political and economic inequality, deploying original research, advocacy, litigation, and strategic communications to create the America the people deserve.
