Defend democracy in the South.


North Carolina state Sen. Joyce Krawiec (R) is one of the primary sponsors of a bill now moving through the state legislature that would bar stricter disclosure requirements for nonprofits involved in partisan politics. In her re-election campaign last year, Krawiec was supported by a political nonprofit that sent out mailers that lied about her opponent's stance on police reform; reporters traced its funding to a Virginia nonprofit that in turn was funded by other nonprofits whose donors were not disclosed.
