Offshore strings attached to dark money?

Remember how many times conservatives have said they’re afraid of the United Nations having too much power, because it would give foreigners say-so over us?

Remember how many times Republicans have decried foreign influences on our government?

Now, post-Citizens United, do right-wingers like it that corporations can flood American elections with dark money, because they think it will help conservatives get elected?

Now, do those same conservatives really think cash from foreigners isn’t already pouring into American political campaigns?

Why wouldn't billionaires and poobahs who own stock in multinational corporations want to influence elections in the United States?

Why don't Republican UN-hating voters worry about the foreign strings attached to large money from anonymous players being donated to Super Pacs?
