Legislation that enables public and/or citizen-financed campaigns

May 9, 2015

Since we can't wait for a Supreme Court majority that grasps that democracy depends on politics freed from corporate dominance, we must move now for legislation enabling public and/or citizen-financed campaigns so that candidates don't have to use any corporate money. The approach has worked for three state legislatures. At the same time, we can vote for those supporting measures that mandate disclosure of the sources of money in political contests: DISCLOSE Act and the Shareholder Protection Act. http://fairelectionsnow.org/ http://sunlightfoundation.com/blog/2012/07/16/what-you-should-know-about... http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/corpgov/2011/07/14/the-re-introduction-of-t...
