PETITION: End Citizens United

Members of Congress:

Allowing the flood of cash unleashed by Citizens United to go unchecked is a threat to our democracy. As we saw this year, our elections are becoming more about the quantity of cash and less about the quality of ideas.

It could get even worse. President-elect Trump railed against the influence of big money in our political system during his campaign. But now his allies in Congress want to use his victory to lift campaign finance safeguards and allow contributors to spend more.

We cannot fix this broken system until we undo the flawed premise that spending money on elections and free speech are the same thing — a premise we need to reverse by amending the Constitution.

I stand with Tom Udall in supporting a constitutional amendment to reduce the corrosive influence of corporate and special interest money in our elections.

Return the power to where it belongs — with the American people.

Signed,
