Read: A ‘Dark Money’ Mystery In Florida State Senate Race

Florida: Just a few weeks before the Elections in Florida, a mysterious company called Proclivity, Inc. contributed $550,000 to a pair of newly formed political action committees in the state.

However, a couple of days later, the money flowed from the PACs to an Orlando-area print and advertising firm.

Shortly thereafter, a deluge of nearly identical political fliers came that seemingly intended to siphon away support from Democratic candidates by tricking voters into casting their ballots for purported spoiler candidates who demonstrated no real interest in getting elected.

In one way, the mailers appear to have assisted a Republican unseat the Democratic incumbent in a state Senate race through a hairline margin of just 32 votes.

The situation, that developed headlines in Florida for weeks, has all the makings of a “dark money” mystery in the Sunshine State.

The research director of the nonpartisan watchdog group Integrity Florida, Ben Wilcox said that he is assured that someone running a dark money campaign has impacted even one state senate seat.

“Florida is so loosely regulated when it comes to financing of campaigns that it’s probably legal, but it really shouldn’t be,” Wilcox said.

“It’s a disservice to voters and it calls into question the integrity of our elections,” CNN quoted him as saying.
