In a settlement last week with the California Fair Political Practices Commission, two dark money groups — the Center to Protect Patient Rights and Americans for Responsible Leadership — agreed to pay $500,000 each for their role in channeling $15 million into two state-level PACs in California. 
Both of the groups fined are linked to an Arizona political consultant named Sean Noble, who has ties with the Koch brothers, and both groups were involved in another strange set of transfers that started long before the California case.  OpenSecrets.Org first started tracking the American Commitment money churn here, and we shed more light on it in September.  
This graphic shows where the American Commitment money flows — and it’s millions — currently stand.
