Big Donors to Speaker Pelosi: Pass Fair Elections

Public Campaign Action Fund is now Every Voice. Check out our new website: EveryVoice.org

The New York Times political blog, The Caucus, reports that big donors have wriiten a letter to Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) that says enough is enough - it's time to pass Fair Elections style campaign reform.

 

The donor letter-signers — all among society’s wealthiest few — write: “The court’s action will clearly lead to an increase in independent expenditures by the wealthiest interests in our society, diminishing the voices of candidates and voters alike.” The threat of “outside intervention in elections,” they declare, “will add to the already intolerable pressure on members of Congress to raise campaign funds, a consuming distraction for those who are tasked with leading our nation during difficult times such as these.”
