About the messenger:

CVNM Verde Voters Fund is the political action committee of Conservation Voters New Mexico. 

The messenger's money:

This group is labeled "dark" because their large contributions come from national nonprofits for whom donor information is unavailable. However, unlike many political action groups with undisclosed donors, the individual contributions to the Verde Voters Fund are disclosed and staff of CVNM are well known in New Mexico for their advocacy work.
