Super-PACs and 'dark money': The musical explanation


The video, "Oh, Super-PACs!" aims to explain the evolving role of the groups and the unlimited funds they can raise without disclosing detailed campaign-finance reports.

The silhouetted figures in the video sing, “Gimme all your money and let's not talk about it.” They also sing about “dark money.”

“But they don’t have to say where the cash comes from, that’s called ‘dark money,’ don’t act so stunned.”

The video, produced by Explainer Music, with music and lyrics by David Holmes, takes a negative view of unregulated campaign spending.

“You can vote with a ballot, but a checkbook works better,” the song goes.
