SC Lede: Dark Money - The New Normal
Dark money: What is it, who uses it, and hows does it affect how voters see issues and candidates?
On this episode of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson speaks with The Post and Courier's Andy Brown about his in-depth report on the $6 million of dark money involved in the 2018 South Carolina elections. They discuss the misleading ads and mailers bought with that money, what state lawmakers are doing to address this issue, and the state grand jury corruption report released last year concerning political consulting firm Richard Quinn & Associates.
Then, South Carolina Public Radio's own Russ McKinney stops by to quiz Gavin about South Carolina history in this week's Did You Know segment.
