You have the same problem with contributions made directly to candidates.

The vast majority of ad buys will probably come from PACs, party organizations and the candidates themselves. These buys are easy to vet. Enterprising reporters and Internet trolls can vet the unfamiliar names. I suspect that they will do a better job of vetting the ad buys than the party organizations do vetting the direct contributions.

Transparency is a step in the right direction.

I suspect when the dollar amounts are finally accumulated that we will find that the Russians spent a relatively small amount on the ads, particularly when you consider how much the candidates spent. Unfortunately, the Russians are masters of misinformation and manipulation and got more of a bang for their buck.
