Spurred on by the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, big, special-interest money from corporations and wealthy individuals is already swamping our campaigns through so-called Super PACs.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has fueled Super PACs by ruling that candidates can appear at Super PAC fundraising events, and that Super PAC spending is still “independent” of the candidate. Unbelievable! But TRUE.
Thanks to the already overwhelming response from League members, we have pushed the number of signatures within a few thousand signatures of our goal! We could not have done this much work without you; we still need 3,000 signature by Friday, February 10th!
If you’ve already signed the petition, challenge your friends, challenge your neighbors and challenge other League members to step up and sign! Forward this email to your address book or share this message on Facebook!
If you haven’t signed the petition, follow these easy steps to create an account and add your name to the petition!
Yours in the fight,
Grassroots Advocacy Manager,
League of Women Voters of the United States
