A dark money organization tied to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said Tuesday that it will spend over half a million dollars on ads targeting 2020 presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden.

Ocasio-Cortez has been an outspoken critic of dark money, which refers to the practice of using cash to influence an election, by funneling it through nonprofit groups that are not obligated to disclose their donor lists.

The group in question, Organize for Justice, is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization and falls under that same purview. They've set aside $500,000 for the Democratic primary and will use the funds to purchase Facebook ads to promote stories that question Buttigieg and Biden's progressive political leanings, according to HuffPost.
