Dark money groups tied to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have donated nearly $20 million in hidden donor cash into the midterm elections, federal records show.

The election cash has gone to the Senate Majority and House Majority PACs, which are tied to Schumer and Pelosi. The PACs bankroll Senate and House Democrats, many of whom protest against dark money's political influence.

Majority Forward, a nonprofit that does not identify its donors on tax forms, has given nearly $15 million into the midterm elections up to the end of March, Federal Election Commission records show.

The Senate Majority PAC took in all of Majority Forward’s cash for the midterms, making the nonprofit its largest contributor in this bid. J.B Poersch, a long-time Schumer ally, is President of Majority Forward and the PAC. Both groups share office space and personnel.

“Let’s be clear: corporate Republicans are the only ones standing in the way of increasing transparency and making progress on campaign finance reform,” a Majority Forward spokesperson told Fox News.

“We look forward to the day when Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans stop blocking these badly needed reforms but until then, we will continue to play by the rules of the current system and level the playing field for Democrats in the face of enormous corporate special interest spending on the other side,” the spokesperson said.

Majority Forward's midterm funding follows the $60 million the group had injected into the 2020 elections to help Democrats recover the Senate majority. It has now poured $75 million into elections over the two cycles - a drastic increase over the $5.5 million it had injected for the 2016 and 2018 elections combined.

The Schumer-affiliated nonprofit has funneled the anonymous cash into his PAC as he regularly criticizes dark money, which he says “corrupted our politics.” Schumer has also advocated Conservative judicial groups disclose their funders, as he and other Democrats have benefited from several dark money judicial groups of their own.

Majority Forward’s skyrocketing election funding was made possible due to a banner fundraising haul from its anonymous donors. The nonprofit, which primarily works on Democratic voter engagement efforts, hauled a record $92 million in donations in 2020, Fox News previously reported.

Meanwhile, House Majority Forward, a nonprofit that also does not identify its donors, has kicked $2.5 million over to its counterpart House Majority PAC. The nonprofit has funneled $10 million into elections since its inception in 2019.

Like Schumer, Pelosi frequently denounces dark money.

House Majority Forward’s tax forms show that the group collected $29.7 million from undisclosed contributors in 2020, a $21.5 million gain in secret cash over its founding year.
