Follow the Money: How big money donors circumvent fundraising caps through PACs
By
The Nevada Independent Staff

By Megan Messerly and Riley Snyder

New Nevada. Growth & Opportunity. Leadership in Nevada.

These groups are just a handful of Nevada Political Action Committees that played a major role in the 2016 campaign cycle, and don’t let their vague, buzzword-filled names fool you — these groups raised more than $14.8 million (and spent $14.2 million) over the 2016 campaign cycle.

That’s more than the $14.2 million that individual legislators reported raising over the 2016 campaign cycle, and PACs are generally subject to fewer rules than individual candidate accounts.

Under Nevada law, individuals and businesses are prohibited from giving more than $10,000 to statewide candidates for their primary and general elections, but there’s no such limit on contributions on PACs, leading many legislators to take advantage and pad their campaign finance reports and take in even more donations.

There are rules around PACs — they’re subject to the same $5,000 contribution limitation to individual candidates for both the primary and general elections, and state law specifically prohibits “straw man” or conduit contributions made through PACs.

Using information from the Nevada Secretary of State’s online campaign finance portal, we pulled historical campaign contributions and expenditures from dozens of PACs going back to 2011. Below we’ve highlighted the major donations or expenditures made during the 2016 campaign cycle.

As always, Nevada Independent reporters double checked all of the figures, but if you see a counting error or missing PAC, send an email to megan@thenvindy.com or rsnyder@thenvindy.com.
