Soft Money

I’m starting to get interested in politics these days and I’ve come across something that I’m a bit confused on.

I thought that the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 banned soft money contributions. So why am I hearing that soft money is still playing a role in the current campaigns?

wtf is soft money?

and is there a hard money?

P-dog put 2 and 2 together dude, bills are soft and coins are hard.
