End Citizens United: Fighting Against Illegal Political Campaigns

Published / by StevenLHarris

End Citizens United was founded with the sole purpose of monitoring and ending the illegal funds that are put into political campaigns for special interests. This group works to help pro-reform candidates running for office get elected because of their fairness and transparency of where their campaign funding came from. This group works with campaigns that have ballot measuring. Ballet measuring campaigns help pass laws to better measure and watch campaign funding.

End Citizens United is a grassroot organization funded by donors big and small from all over the United States. The organization is located in Washington, D.C. The organization is ran by a strong leadership. This political action committee’s president is Tiffany Muller. The executive VP is Matt Burgess and Adam Bozzi is in charge of communications. The board of directors boast a lot of knowledge in campaigns, government and politics which helps this organization succeed.

In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court made a history altering decision when it ruled that Citizens United could be funded by untraceable money. The money this political action committee gets is now legal to come from unknown sources with unknown amounts for American elections. The lack of transparency this involves has made it extremely easy for donors to fund campaigns and in return get candidates to make legislation that benefits them once they are elected. Essentially, the ultra wealthy can buy a candidate into position to get that candidate to work in its favor. End Citizens United was created to fight the illegal ways campaigns are being funded to only suit a tiny amount of the population. Typically, the political action committee aligns with the Democratic party because of their principles.

Recently, Rick Scott has been in the news for having his hands tied to illegal forms of funding for his senator campaign. Charges have been placed against him in the past for a connection to Medicare fraud. He resigned once the company he was CEO of began getting investigated by the FBI and had to cough up over one billion dollars in fines. As a candidate for U.S. Senate, he has also been had to take on more fraud responsibility but denies this. He denies any miss use of campaign funds. End Citizens United aims to expose and fight situations like this when there is a believable cause that a candidate is running a campaign that’s funded by illegal means of money.
