ICYMI: Rubio: Democrats Could Be Taking Donations from the Kremlin
Democrats whine about “dark money” but could be taking in donations from the Kremlin
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)
September 27, 2022
…[E]ven as Democrats advocate greater transparency in politics, they are allowing foreign influencers to make illegal donations to American political organizations….
When it comes to political donations, verification is common sense. That is why almost all organizations require CVVs [card verification values]. Think about it: Can you remember a time when you made an online credit card transaction and did not have to enter your three-digit security code?
…Even most campaigns and political action committees require CVVs. They know that anti-American regimes use fake accounts and automated donations run by computer programs to influence U.S. policy, and they would rather lose out on funds than let enemy governments undermine our elections’ integrity.
There is one highly notable exception, however. ActBlue — the largest left-wing political organization in the country, which raised almost $4 billion for more than 21,000 Democratic candidates, committees and groups in the 2020 cycle alone — does not require CVVs for donations….
That’s right. While Democrats indulge conspiracy theories about cabals in dark rooms propping up Republican politicians…, their own organizations may be receiving funds from the likes of Putin’s Kremlin and the Chinese Communist Party. This is the real “dark money” people should be talking about….
I’ve introduced legislation that would require legally designated political organizations, like ActBlue, to ask for donors’ CVVs — or else lose their tax-exempt status….
You cannot credibly support election integrity unless you’re also willing to secure political organizations from fraud and illegal foreign donations. When the most vocal Democrats championing the DISCLOSE Act are totally silent on ActBlue, it shows their greatest motive is merely for power at all costs.
