Lol! Fuck you gronk. You ignorant math challenged lying cunt.

(CNN)Democrats have denounced anonymous money in politics for
years, but 2020 brought a tidal wave of it into the election to
benefit their party.

More than $320 million of so-called "dark money" helped boost
Democrats in the White House and congressional races -- more
than double the anonymous dollars that aided Republicans in this
year's federal elections, a new analysis shows.

A top beneficiary: President-elect Joe Biden. Nearly $132
million in anonymous money backed his White House bid, compared
to nearly $22 million to aid President Donald Trump, according
to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics for CNN.

The analysis by the center defines dark money as donations and
spending by nonprofits that do not disclose the sources of the
money. It also includes money flowing into politics from limited
liability corporations operating as shell companies.

The trend toward Democrats is a stark reversal from previous
presidential election cycles in which dark money overwhelmingly
boosted Republicans.

The new figures come as candidates, political parties and
outside groups, including those funded by nonprofits that
conceal their donors -- unleash a fresh wave of spending in
Georgia to influence two US Senate runoffs that will determine
which party controls the chamber. More than $287 million already
had been booked on television ad buys in the state through
Wednesday, according to a CNN tally of advertising data
collected by Kantar's Campaign Media Analysis Group.
