Washington Post Quotes Matthew Sanderson on Political Nonprofits Naming Their Donors

September 18, 2018, The Washington Post

Advocacy groups pouring money into independent campaigns to impact this fall’s midterm races must disclose many of their political donors beginning this week after the Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to intervene in a long-running case.

. . .

“Moving forward, these groups will need to disclose to the public any donor that gave money for the purpose of influencing a federal election, regardless of whether they want to sponsor a particular race or specific communication,” said Matthew Sanderson, a Republican campaign finance attorney. “Some groups will not need to adjust their approach to raising funds, but this will be a significant change for others.”  Mr. Sanderson is also a Member of Caplin & Drysdale’s Political Law Group in Washington, D.C.
