Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has signed a measure that significantly expands anonymous political spending in Arizona elections.

The proposal by the secretary of state that was touted as a housecleaning measure increases the influence of dark money groups that can spend money on elections without revealing their donors.

The campaign finance re-write doubles the amount these groups spend on ballot measures and allows nonprofit groups to spend more money influencing elections without having to reveal donors.
