It is illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns a disclosure requirement that is one of the few ways of guarding against foreigners influencing American elections. This ban would be gravely undermined by a little-noticed bill advanced Thursday by Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee that the I.R.S. would no longer be told the identities of contributors to these nonprofits. Watchdog groups warn in a letter to the House that this would “open the door wide for secret, unaccountable money from foreign governments, foreign corporations and foreign individuals to be illegally laundered into federal elections.” It would alter the current tax code provision. Sneaky way for foreigners to undermine our elections! Thanks GOP!
