Tracking Down The Money

Given that the legislature is in session and interest grows in what is happening in regards to education issues such as RAISE/PREP, a lot of folks are interested in knowing how they can find out  who funded campaigns of house and senate members.

With this in mind, I bring you a post from a number of months ago that explains how to navigate the Secretary of State’s web site to get this info.

And don’t forget to pay attention to “in-kind” contributions as this is how many ;PAC folks support candidates by paying for polling, preparing mail outs, paying for robo calls, etc.  For instance, this was how the Alabama Federation for Children supported most of their candidates for the legislature in 2014.

Happy hunting.
