Elections cost money. But money shouldn't be able to buy elections. Fair and clean elections, determined by the votes of American citizens, should be at the center of our democracy. The League supports legislation that will enhance disclosure, combat corruption and fix the public financing system.
The League and coalition groups sent a letter to the House of Representatives urging them to oppose repeal of presidential public financing. Repeal legislation would eliminate a system which has given average citizens and small donors a critically important role to play in funding our presidential campaigns.
Below is a list of letters to the editor published in newspapers across the country on the DISCLOSE Act, leading up to the election in November of 2010. The list is alphabetical by state and then League. For those newspapers that require a subscription a link was not included.
