Speaker Debra Bongofsky. Debra was the victim of undisclosed money influence during her run for office as a candidate for Montana State Legislature in 2010. Debra started looking into dark money when her campaign was attacked and stated at the recent opening of the film in Billings that she felt vindicated when 14 candidates were charged with accepting illegal campaign contributions and the candidate running against her was fined for that activity. The director gives credit to Debra for her persistence in pursuing the charges against her opponent with the office of political practices. Kimberley stated that the film would not have been possible if Debra had not been suspicious and done her own initial investigation.
