End Citizens United; the Political Action Committee (PAC) Championing Campaign Finance Reform

End Citizens United is a national grassroots political committee. The committee’s main agenda has been spearheading reforms of campaign finances. This is done, usually, by funding campaigns of the politicians who stand against the decision of Citizens United ruled by Supreme Court in 2010; this is where the name End Citizens United originated from. This ruling of Supreme Court has meaningfully boosted the involvement of corporations to fund politicians by offering huge contributions to their campaigns hence making them able to form super PACs with the ability to spend and raise huge amounts.

 

This PAC has endorsed one of the politicians, U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, for re-elections come 2018. He has been vocal about the campaign finance reforms by advocating for transparency when it comes to political spending and donations. He has even gone ahead to publish a book called ‘Captured: The Corporate Infiltration of American Democracy.’ Democrat Senator Whitehouse has even looked into Neil Gorsuch who is a Supreme Court Justice about the millions of unexplained money used to support his nominations. This was not met very well by the Republicans such as Representative John Loughlin who hit back with the same accusations about the dark money used for Democrat campaigns. Whitehouse has also received opposition from other Republicans such Rep. Robert Nadillo of Coventry State and Justice Robert Flanders, a former Supreme Court judge who will battle it out in the next elections for the senatorial position.

 

This PAC has devoted itself to making sure that the people or organizations with hefty checkbooks do not interfere with the politics of the USA. It has contributed more than $4 million in three months and is looking up to $ 35 million in contributions coming 2018 midterm elections. This PAC is headed by Tiffany Muller who is the president and the executive director of the group. She had announced that about 100,000 people are committed to their cause by contribution, the majority of who contribute for the first time she is determined when it comes to making sure huge contributors to politics do not rig the system by having the bigger influence. This has been made sure by Tiffany that nobody contributes more than $5000 to End Citizens United per donor.

 

Contributors to the End Citizens United has been advised to raise half a million dollars towards the campaigns of Jon Ossof. He is a first-time Democrat congressman political candidate in Georgia. Jon Ossof pulled an amazing surprise to many politicians by raising more than $4 million for the campaign to fill a vacant seat in the Republican House. This was left vacant by the appointment of Tom Price as A Secretary of Health and Human Services. This PAC is pushing for its agenda, and it might eventually succeed.
