RELEASE: Dark Money Group Releases False Ad in New Hampshire to Try to Keep Dark Money in Elections

Concord, N.H. -- Restoration Action, a dark money group is releasing a false ad on New Hampshire stations attacking Senator Maggie Hassan for supporting H.R. 1, - which has been called “the most sweeping anti-corruption measure ... in a generation.” H.R. 1 would substantially reduce the influence of corporate special interests and billionaires in U.S. elections while cracking down on unethical behavior by lawmakers. Restoration Action is a dark money group whose policy platform includes repealing the Affordable Care Act’s protections for pre-existing conditions, defunding Planned Parenthood, slashing Social Security benefits, banning unions, and eliminating the Department of Education. As a dark money group, Restoration Action exploits a loophole to keep the source of its funding completely anonymous. However, its affiliated PAC is funded almost entirely by Uline Inc. -- the packaging company owned by Republican megadonor Richard Uihlein and received a $280,000 donation from the anti-LGBTQ+ group American Principles Project last month. “It’s not a coincidence that Governor Sununu and New Hampshire Republicans are spewing the exact same lies that these dark money groups are paying millions to spread to ensure that our elections benefit their big corporations and special interest donors,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “This ad is just another scheme crafted by dark money groups to help corrupt politicians like Chris Sununu and Mitch McConnell, silence Granite State voters, and try to keep dark money in our elections.”
