Helena – Wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale has long been opposed to getting rid of dark money groups in politics and having them disclose their secret donors.
As a proponent of dark money in politics, Rosendale voted in 2015 against the bipartisan Montana Disclose Act, which requires dark money groups to disclose their donors and campaign expenditures.
In 2013, Rosendale voted against the bipartisan TRACE Act (Transparency, Reporting and Accountability in Campaigns and Elections Act), which would require anonymous dark money political groups to disclose their donors. A Republican legislator who sponsored the bill said the TRACE Act was “all about following the money…we’re trying to level the playing field.”
