Corporate money in our elections threatens to drown out the voices of real people. It's time to restore grassroots democracy before it's too late.
We need Congress to pass the proposed legislation overturning Citizens United. Add your name to our petition now.
You've likely seen a flurry of proposals for constitutional amendments that would overturn the ruling in Citizens United. I led the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine for eight years, and I know how serious it is to propose an amendment to the Constitution.
That's why I'm specifically calling for us to pass the Harkin amendment, which would restore constitutional authority to the states and Congress to regulate campaign contributions and expenditures. The US Senate Judiciary Committee just held a hearing on this amendment yesterday, and now we need your support to pass it.
Sign our petition telling Congress to pass the Harkin Amendment now. The Supreme Court made the wrong call on the Citizens United case, and now we have a chance to restore the constitutional authority that was wrongly taken from us.
Our campaign for the US Senate here in Maine has been funded almost entirely by the grassroots. In fact, more than 84% of our donations were $50 or less, and more than 10,000 people have contributed. This is what elections should be about: everyday people supporting the candidates and campaigns they care about, not massive corporate PAC checks overrunning the system with dark money. Please add your name to our petition, so that we can restore citizen democracy; let's put electoral power back in the hands of the people.
Thanks and take care,
P.S. To further show your support for the power of everyday American voices, please consider making a $5 donation to our grassroots campaign. We aren't taking big corporate PAC money, and we need your donations to get our message out to the voters. Click here to make your donation today.
