KING 5: Seattle council candidates raise millions ahead of election

KING 5, 10/8/2015

While candidates' individual campaigns have maximum contribution limits of $700 in Seattle, independent expenditures have no limits. However, the IE spending cannot be known or made in cooperation or in concert with the candidate's campaign, or so they've sworn.

"Accountability is really important here," said Sage Wilson of Working Washington.

Wilson started a political website, "" to highlight who is contributing to campaigns.
