Getting Money Out of Politics


We all deserve an equal voice in our government. But thanks to court rulings, corporations and wealthy special interests have flooded the system with money and have bought the politicians, drowning out the voices of everyday Americans. I have pledged not to accept corporate PAC contributions, because it is my firm belief that our elected officials should serve the voters, not corporations or special interests.


Priorities

  • Supporting other candidates that refuse to accept corporate PAC money
  • Working toward a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and require campaign finance limits and transparency for corporations and PACs.
  • Explore pilot programs of public campaign financing like Seattle’s Democracy Voucher program
  • Support legislation to provide incentives to candidates to raise the majority of their money from small individual contributions, like vouchers for broadcasting and mailers, and tax credits for small individual donors.
