The state recently passed legislation forcing political organizations like SuperPACs and so-called advocacy groups to reveal their donors if they run ads within sixty days of an election.

The law will apply to several organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, as well as Karl Rove and the Koch brother’s political organizations, which are planning to spend a billion dollars nationwide. And it might deter these deep-pocketed oligarchs from spending money in the state if they don’t want their names revealed.

That means if other states pass similar laws, then it will be a lot harder for anonymous corporations, foreigners, and billionaires to buy our elections this year.
