IRS: Stop hiding dark money!

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Common Cause, and I started a petition to John Koskinen, IRS Commissioner , which says:

Stop partisan political operatives from hiding their spending by exploiting our tax laws. Enforce the laws on the books, and write new ones to close the dark money loophole!

Secretive megadonors are ready to unleash a tidal wave of spending on the 2016 election -- and the IRS is helping them hide their identities.

Groups on the right, like Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS, and left, like Patriot Majority USA, buy millions of dollars in political ads to influence elections after claiming a special nonprofit status that lets them keep their donors secret. And the IRS takes their word for it!

We need to close this loophole BEFORE next November. Demand that the IRS enforce the rules and stop millionaires from abusing our tax laws to pump secret money into our elections!

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.
