A Push Towards an Executive Order: President Obama Could Take the First Step Towards Stopping Secret Corporate Election Spending
Over 50 rallies were held across the country on April 2, 2015, calling on President Barack Obama to take the first step to stop the flow of undisclosed corporate funds into our elections. Ever since the Citizens United ruling, there has been a staggering increase in the amount of election spending by anonymous sources.
If the president were to enact the executive order, corporations contracting with the U.S. government would be required to publicly disclose all of their spending in our elections. The public has a right to know if federal contractors are trying to buy influence and win special favors. Sign the petition calling on President Obama to take action.
