The dark money issue came up briefly when Joe Pojman, executive director of the anti-abortion group Texas Alliance for Life, urged legislators to require the disclosure of anonymous donors. “Some of these elections are decided by 30 votes or fewer.

That undermines confidence in the election process and in the elected officials who benefit from those ads.”
