The Report will detail how is buying election ads on Google and how much money they're spending on it. According to Walker, for those wishing to publish political ads, Google will "require that advertisers confirm they are a USA citizen or lawful permanent resident, as required by law". Google and other tech companies are in a race to counter potential foreign election meddling in the 2018 midterms.
Google is overhauling its political advertising system in an effort to crack down on shady election ads. What this means is that advertisers will have to furnish their government-issued ID and other key information before they're allowed to buy election ads on Google. The Chocolate Factory, along with Twitter and Facebook, has taken heat for its role in helping both foreign and domestic political groups in the U.S. covertly spread dubious (some would say "fake") news sites with the aim of influencing election outcomes and swaying public opinion on key issues. We expect this will help more campaigns and officials who are often the targets of sophisticated phishing attacks. Ads will have to clearly disclose who is paying for them, according to Walker.

The new policy is being implemented with the goal of a 100% prosecution rate for all that enter the USA illegally, officials said. The Department of Homeland Security reported nearly 51,000 people were arrested or turned away at the southwest border in April.
Kent Walker, Google's Senior Vice President, in his blog post on Friday has announced Google's new rules for the verification of political advertising buyers and the related transparency reports. Facebook a year ago announced that only authorised advertisers would be permitted to run election ads at the leading social network and its photo and video-sharing service Instagram.
"We're also building a searchable library for election ads, where anyone can find election ads purchased on Google and who paid for them", Walker noted.

There was no jealousy there or envy. "Things like that are what you need to win tournaments", Day said. "That really bugged me". It's an unbelievable golf course. "I knew I had to play incredible golf to be there and I was able to do it", Wise said.
Facebook's plan to address the issue involves increasing transparency.
While Facebook may have their issues with political ads well in hand, Google has been somewhat silent on the issue.
Giuliani does not rule out possibility there were payments to other women
He said the money had been made to make the controversy "go away", suggesting that it was meant to aid Trump's election prospects. Avenatti spoke Sunday on ABC's "This Week" immediately following an interview with Giuliani on the same show.
The move comes in the wake of strong evidence that Russian Federation used social media and online ads in an attempt to influence the 2016 US Presidential election. This data was later used to profile and influence American voters.
