By revealing the “Big Money 20”, End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller began the campaigning season for the 2-18 Midterms in earnest. The group of 20 Republicans who have been guilty of accepting the most funding from special interest groups was named and shamed by Muller as she set out to show the voters of the U.S. which politicians were backed by so-called “dark money”. T&his is just the latest step in the continued attempts of Tiffany Muller and End Citizens United to bring about election finance reform which many believe has taken democracy out of the American political sector.
Happy #PrimaryDay! Today’s important for Ohioans—it’s crucial that we make our voices heard.
End Citizens United came into being in 2015 with the overall aim of repealing the Citizens United decision of 2010 which allowed the almost unlimited funding of political parties and candidates by mega-donors and special interest groups. Over the course of the 2018 Midterms, End Citizens United hopes to back the more than 70 candidates from the Democratic party or left-leaning independents including some of the most famous liberal politicians currently serving in Washington D.C. including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
The PAC is not only looking to back some of the most famous left-leaning politicians in the U.S. but also to take on the cause of seemingly impossible to win elections. Prior to the 2018 Midterms, End Citizens United built its reputation by backing some of the candidates responsible for the most amazing special election victories since the arrival of President Donald Trump in The White House; End Citizens United played a key role in the special election victory of Doug Jones over former conservative judge Roy Moore in January 2018 as the reputation of the PAC grown over recent years.
As a growing influence in left-leaning political circles, End Citizens United is already being courted by those who are positioning themselves for a Presidential run in 2020. Kirsten Gillibrand, the New York Senator is one of those who has already identified the cause of election funding as a major one in the upcoming elections of 2018 and 2020 and promised not to accept special interest funding throughout the current election cycle. Gillibrand has turned her back on more than $750,000 in funding from special interest groups as she positions herself for a potential Presidential run and hopes to attract younger voters with the aid of End Citizens United.
The president of End Citizens United (ECU), Tiffany Mueller, is probing if Russian Facebook ads meddled with the 2016 US election. The ads from a Russian troll firm are reported to have cost $100,000 despite there being a ban on foreign spending in election campaigns. Mueller’s team is also looking into if President Trump’s campaign team aided the Russian firm. ECU is doing this since it believes that right-wing politicians with special interests are undermining campaign finance laws. The Political Action Committee (PAC) believes that Washington is not making enough effort to stop the infiltration of foreign money in American election campaigns. This is not the first time foreign cash has made its way in the US elections. In the past, Chinese and Mexican money has funded super PACs in the country supporting several candidates. Pushing this debate on the meddling of foreign money in US elections, ECU has on more than one occasion called on Washington to be courageous enough to ward off the involvement of special interest groups that do not have the welfare of the American people at heart.
End Citizens United on Social Media
The fact that foreign money has made its way in US election campaigns highlights many loopholes in campaign finance laws that need to be sealed. ECU is working with fellow like-minded citizens to promote the funding of election campaigns at the grassroots level. It also supports Democrats to office who advocate for the sealing of such loopholes by advocating for reforms in campaign finance laws. The PAC is present on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter where it sells its agenda and interacts with other like-minded Americans.
End Citizens Endorses Jones
In a different scenario, End Citizens United has been on the lead of endorsing Jones Doug for senate. The PAC is bent on believing that he is the right choice for leadership roles. Being senator requires so much. It requires selflessness and appropriate behavior. The team stated that Jones is a reliable attorney and he can handle cases pertaining to finance reforms. He is likely going to fight for his people, the citizens. Jones does not have a dirty track record that would disqualify him. On the other hand, Moore is not a straight man when it comes to character. Moore will disappoint citizens. It is clear that Moore has a record of misconduct. He is set to disappoint people by pocketing their money instead of working to elevate them economically. For End Citizens, Moore is a bad choice and he should not even be part of the vying candidates. He lacks reliability and credibility. He is also corrupt and selfish. What is worst, he is racist.
