Political donor network
A political donor network is an unregulated organization created to use 'soft' campaign money by taking advantage of a loophole in the new McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law.
The list of donor networks appears has undergone a growth spurt since the passage of McCain-Feingold in 2002. Although political donor networks existed prior to McCain-Feingold, their numbers are increasing with a few of these organizations now clearly identified.

- May's List
- New Democrat Network
- Progressive Donor Network
- Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund/Victory Fund
