‘Dark money’ boosts Democratic super PAC that’s battling ‘corrupt campaign finance system’

Most of BlackPAC’s July income came from a limited liability company


 BlackPAC — an upstart super PAC that’s raised millions to support Democrats — has received a new infusion of “dark money” to fuel its 2018 midterm election efforts, according to new federal filings.

BlackPAC received $100,000 in July from Propel Capital Network LLC, by far its largest contributor last month, federal documents indicate. The Delaware-registeredNew York-based limited liability company does not publicly disclose its funding sources.

While BlackPAC has been outspoken about fighting racial injustice, battling “unchecked power” and “working to end the corrupt campaign finance system that benefits corporations over citizens,” the Center for Public Integrity earlier this year reported that the majority of BlackPAC’s funds came mostly from super PACs and dark money nonprofits.

BlackPAC officials declined to comment on the contribution from Propel Capital Network LLC, which is leading an effort this year to support various liberal organizations.
