Influential conservative dark-money group doesn’t have to reveal donors, face campaign finance sanctions, Denver judge rules

The Colorado Sun: An influential, conservative dark-money political group doesn’t have to reveal its donors and pay a $40,000 campaign finance fine levied by state elections officials stemming from the $4 million it spent on 2020 ballot initiatives, a Denver District Court judge ruled Friday.

Judge David H. Goldberg found that Unite for Colorado, which has since disbanded, didn’t violate a state law requiring political nonprofits to register as issue committees and reveal their funders when their spending on a ballot initiative is their “major purpose.” 

The Colorado Sun refers to political nonprofits as dark-money groups because they don’t have to disclose their donors.
