In the wake of Citizens United, if corporations like ExxonMobil or AIG want to give hundreds of millions of dollars to a shadowy front group to swing an election, they can do so in 100% secrecy.
Earlier this year Congress nearly passed a bill—the DISCLOSE Act—that would curtail the secrecy and force front-groups to let voters know which corporations and CEOs are funding their political attacks.
The bill came up short because some Republican senators said they didn't want to pass the common sense measure until after the election. Now that the election is over we have an opportunity to push this bill forward, but it won't happen unless we push hard on Congress to act.
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your Senators and Representative.
Full petition text:
"It's time to end secret corporate political spending. Secret contributions hurt our democracy. Pass the DISCLOSE Act before the end of the year."
