Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is helping launch a new lobbying organization with a group of prominent Washington political consultants and tech executives. The new group will be set up as a 501(c)(4), which critics often deride as “dark money” because they are not required to disclose their donors. Joe Green, founder of Causes.com and Zuckerberg’s former college roommate, is spearheading the effort, which will include other executive donors from the tech world.
