Throughout the year, the Center for Public Integrity has brought you documented coverage of the most expensive election in U.S. history - a total approaching $6 billion.
On the morning of this financial free-for-all, and the least transparent election in recent history, I invite you to visit our website. There you’ll find our extensive Consider the Source reporting - profiles and data on more than 50 Super PACs; spending by independent outside groups not affiliated with House or Senate candidates; some $75 million in corporate cash; names of campaign bundlers rounding up cash for both Presidential candidates; and much more.
Our specialized team of money-and-politics investigative editors and reporters has provided a key part of the accountability needed in this election cycle. Whatever the outcome of today’s vote, we won’t miss a beat and will continue digging, keeping a bright light shining on federal, state and judicial races.
Thank you for your support and interest in our work.
P.S. Join the Center’s politics editor, John Dunbar, for a live chat today, Election Day, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET on PBS NewsHour’s After Hours program. Submit your questions about the influence of money and politics and the Center’s reporting today via Twitter and Facebook.
