A judge strikes down Arizona's dark money law. A Maricopa County Superior Court judge has ruled the 2017 law unconstitutional because it conflicts with a 1998 law, approved by voters, that's supposed to lessen the influence of money in politics.
The decision limits political parties from spending as much as they want on candidates, without having to report it. The ruling also will allow the Citizens Clean Elections Commission to enforce campaign finance laws for all candidates and donors. The dark money law had given that power to the Secretary of State.
