Sheldon Whitehouse is Curiously Silent About Some Dark Money

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) sure loves to blast “dark money.” Just check out his Twitter feed. He brings up the Koch Brothers. He brings up Mitch McConnell. He attacks the Federal Society.

Dark money, Whitehouse believes, is a real menace and he wants to stamp it out.

But it is really curious how quiet he is about the Democrats’ dark money.

NBC News reports the Democrats outpaced the GOP in dark money in 2018.

Senator Whitehouse has not heard at all about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez despite the press coverage.

Once he has heard about it, he won’t engage other than to call for a law.

It’s just fascinating that Whitehouse will call out the Kochs. He will call out the Federal Society. He will call out Mitch McConnell. But he just can’t bring himself to call out Democrat dark money interests. He certainly can’t bring himself to call out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
