Sen. Singleton, who is sponsoring legislation to require disclosure of dark money donors, penned an op-ed in the Star-Ledger calling for passage of Senate Bill 1500. Remember the Sunlight Policy Center uncovered that the dark money group New Direction New Jersey (NDNJ) is getting at least $2.5 million from the NJEA to run pro-Murphy ads in which the governor appears. Gov. Murphy conditionally vetoed the dark money disclosure bill, thus protecting NDNJ from disclosure. Sen. Singleton correctly points out that this sort of situation further erodes trust in government. Why is Gov. Murphy allowing a situation where he looks like he’s doing the bidding of the NJEA, a well connected special interest?
