Evidence suggests several state Senate candidates were plants funded by dark money

Imagine a close election race between two candidates. A couple hundred votes will probably make the difference. Now imagine a third candidate enters the race. Very few people know him, he doesn’t invest any money campaigning, but his name is there on the ballot, along with the other two. Oh, and he happens to have the same surname as one of the other two candidates. What do you think will happen? Looks like this cunning and brazen strategy was used in Florida to syphon votes from Democratic candidates.
