Campaign Finance and Election Spending
William Dooling, Research Desk Associate, will teach attendees how to research and track big spenders influencing elections near you. Topics will include a brief overview of election law and how it has changed due to recent supreme court decisions, a look at how nonprofits and donors can influence an election, and an introduction to the best resources for tracking both disclosed and undisclosed spending by political campaigns and “outside spending groups” that influence campaigns on behalf of particular politicians.
