Dark money referendum goes dark

The organizer of a bid to quash a new state law easing rules on anonymous “dark money” donations in political races has folded his tent.

Rep. Ken Clark, D-Phoenix, said Friday he will not be able to get the required 75,321 valid signatures by the Aug. 5 deadline.

In fact, Clark said his approximately 300 volunteers have so far collected only about 20,000 names on petitions. And of that, he said a preliminary review shows only about 16,000 are valid.

Clark said the defeat came down to money — specifically, the lack of it.
