Supreme Court Orders Disclosure for Dark Money, As New Report Unveils Some Donors

The Supreme Court has allowed a lower-court ruling to take effect, compelling disclosure of the big contributions behind explicitly political ads by nonprofit groups — what's often called dark money. The court set aside an order issued by Chief Justice John Roberts on Saturday. The social welfare group Crossroads GPS, a defendant in the lawsuit, fought to stall disclosure while it prepares to appeal. It failed in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and then appealed to the Supreme Court. Now the disclosure requirement is expected to apply to explicitly political ads by nonprofit groups for the remaining eight weeks of the midterms campaign season. The ruling closes, at least for now, a loophole that has allowed wealthy donors to finance aggressive ads while staying anonymous. Crafted by the Federal Election Commission nearly 40 years ago, the loophole flourished after the 2010 Citizens United ruling. The decisions came in a 2016 lawsuit against Crossroads and the Federal Election

50 Years Of Sockin' It To The P.T.A.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOZPBUu7Fro A single mom who wears mini-skirts is the scorn of a small town. Fifty years ago this month, the song "Harper Valley P.T.A." made singer Jeannie C. Riley the first woman to hit the top spot on both the pop and country charts . More recently, the song made Rolling Stone 's list of the "100 Greatest Country Songs of All Time." Written by renowned country artist Tom T. Hall , "Harper Valley P.T.A." is a clap back to slut-shaming. The shaming comes in the form of a snarky letter from the P.T.A. to a single mom: " Well the note said, "Mrs. Johnson, you're wearing your dresses way too high / It's reported you've been drinking / And running 'round with men and goin' wild / And we don't believe you oughta be a-bringin' up your little girl this way / And it was signed by the secretary, Harper Valley P.T.A. ," Riley sings. The P.T.A.'s holier-than-thou members just couldn't hold back their judgments. Even more insulting to this mom, the letter was
