'Dark money' grows in politics even as states try to stop it

dark moneyJust before Rhode Island voters chose their governor last year, a group in Ohio transferred $730,000 from secret donors to another Ohio organization that spent the money on television ads aimed at defeating Gina Raimondo, the Democrat who eventually won a tight race.

More than a year later, it's still not clear where the money came from or why two Ohio-based groups would want to influence an election 600 miles away. The same groups also funneled anonymously donated cash for major political ad campaigns in Arkansas and Illinois.

Rubio Wants to Undo Gay Marriage, End Obama’s LGBT Protections

Rubio's right wing sideThe conventional wisdom is that Marco Rubio is the moderate alternative to Ted Cruz and Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.

But when it comes to LGBT equality, Rubio is as extreme as anyone.

GOP Playbook on Women Gets Even Scarier

Ted CruzLast week, Ted Cruz promoted the endorsement of Troy Newman, an anti-choice leader who has gone so far as to say that a perfectly biblical society would execute its abortion providers.

74% Of Donald Trump's Statements Checked By Politifact Are False

Trump liesFact checkers exist to determine if people are telling the truth. It stands to reason that they will check important statements that are controversial or seemingly false.

Carson incorrectly taps Jefferson as Constitution craftsman

Carson errs on JeffersonRetired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, already under fire for his foreign policy acumen, is now being criticized for his grasp of history, particularly that of Thomas Jefferson.

In a C-SPAN interview broadcast Sunday, Carson praised Jefferson as a Founding Father who “tried to craft our Constitution in a way that it would control peoples’ natural tendencies and control the natural growth of the government.”

Jefferson, however, did not participate in the development of the U.S. Constitution during a 1787 convention.

Marco Rubio spent lavishly on a GOP credit card, but some transactions are still secret

Marco RubioIt has become legend in Florida political circles, a missing chapter in Marco Rubio's convoluted financial story: two years of credit card transactions from his time in the state House, when he and other Republican leaders freely spent party money.

Details about the spending, which included repairs for Rubio's family minivan, emerged in his 2010 U.S. Senate race. But voters got only half the story because the candidate refused to disclose additional records.
