Remember a few months ago when Dem Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse was on that tear against GOP dark money groups that he accused of funding voter suppression?
Sen. Whitehouse is pulling back the curtain on dark money behind judges, and now, voter suppression. @SenWhitehouse @Lawrence #VoterSuppression #darkmoney #judges #MitchMcConnell #TheLastWord https://t.co/VSMeI1XE4S

Yeah, about that. . .
Via Axios, “A dark-money group aligned with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer helped pay for deceptive ads aimed at depressing Republican general election turnout in 2018”:

They have the tax returns, too:
Tax returns reveal "dark money" group bankrolling deceptive digital ads & mailers aimed at depressing Republican voter turnout in a 2018 general election got most of its cash—$2.7M of its $4M—from Senate Democrats' 501(c)(4) nonprofit, Majority Forward https://t.co/y2qizKyoYP pic.twitter.com/bAFvIEKO31

Mind you, this group was funded to attack GOP Senate candidates “from the right to depress GOP turnout”:

This IS what he was worried about happening, right?

Now, imagine for a second this was Republicans and how the media would cover it:
Imagine my surprise.
All is fair in war, but again, the bias…this story would have been out before the 2018 election if it was a Republican group. https://t.co/6TmO6SbCfc

And then imagine the reaction from Dems:
I wonder what the reaction on this website would be if this story was about a MITCH McCONNELL-linked group funneling dark money into deceptive Facebook ads aimed at depressing Democratic voter turnout. 🤔 https://t.co/sKwzDUfzIO
