“DARK MONEY” TERM ADDED TO MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY
Along with terms such as “WTF,” “Clickbait,” and “photobomb,” “dark money” has been added to the latest version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary. However, the definition is incorrect. It erroneously defines “dark money” as funding campaigns, which is strictly prohibited by federal campaign law (as well as many other jurisdictions). (Hat tip to Kenneth P. Vogel).
