Letter: ‘Dark’ money is fueling ‘pay to play’ government

‘Dark’ money is fueling ‘pay to play’ government

On Nov. 10, Buffalo’s wealthy paid Hillary Clinton over a quarter million dollars. Republican candidates already have had coffers filled on their side of the banquet tables. When are the everyday voters going to be addressed?

Huge amounts of “dark” money are turning the country into a “pay to play” atmosphere and it’s happened even at our local elections. Unless we seriously look at Bernie Sanders nationally, our mayors, supervisors and councils will soon follow. Voters must take this threat seriously.
