PACs, Super PACs, Dark Money & Lesson Plan

Today we were discussing interest groups and one of my students asked about super PACs which we are going over next class.  Tonight I just saw that the NYTimes has an article on PACs, super PACs and something new called "dark money" which, while it will not make the AP exam this year is nonetheless exam.  The video from the article is above.

The video below is my favorite from Steven Colbert when he explains the difference between PACs and super PACs.

For those of you who want more, here is what my students are doing on interest groups.
