Campaign Finance Reform
Congress is broken in large part because Congresspeople are beholden to their donors – especially special interests like fossil fuel and pharmaceutical companies.
No fossil fuel money – My campaign will not take money from PACs, lobbyists, or executives of fossil fuel companies.
No corporate PAC money – My campaign will not take donations from corporate PAC’s, we prioritize the interests of those we’re striving to represent, not corporations.
Overturn Citizens United
In 2010 the Supreme Court overruled a ban on independent spending by corporations, ushering in a new era of unchecked campaign donations and super PAC’s. After this ruling outside spending in federal elections soared from $338 million in 2008 to $1.4 billion in 2016.
Corporations shouldn’t be able to buy politicians. I support the proposed constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and I will never take donations from corporations.
