Abstract:     
Since the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. FEC in 2010, over $700 million of untraceable dark money has been spent in American federal elections. This could include illegal foreign donations. This short article explores why dark money in American elections presents a political sovereignty problem.
