But since disclosure laws were created, new kinds of organizations that inject money into politics have sprung up. Nonprofit advocacy groups known as 527s, a reference to a section of the tax code, create issue ads that can help candidates.

This is the problem that the DISCLOSE Act is designed to fix, and Maine's members of Congress should get behind it in time for it to take effect in this political season.
