Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway today praised the efforts of the Missouri House of Representatives' Special Investigative Committee on Oversight and urged the legislature to continue efforts to root out and combat the influence of dark money and secret donors on state government.
Auditor Galloway encouraged the legislature to move forward with its investigation into coordination between dark-money organizations and state entities. She also urged passage of legislation to effectively put an end to secret donations to 501(c)(4) political nonprofits.

Missourians deserve a full accounting of the truth and full disclosure of the extent of dark money's influence on state government. The General Assembly should take action to address this corrupting influence and continue, as it did with the Special Committee, to wisely exercise its oversight.
