End Citizens United is a political action group that has recently taken to its mandate to f fight is against the Supreme Court Decision Citizens United resolution. The resolution supported the flow of unlimited amount of money into political campaigns. The “dark money” could be from interested billionaires or even corporate businesses.
Jacky Rosen, the U.S representative, has recently condoned the activities of billionaires in their elections. She condemned their act of using unlimited amounts of dark money. However, recently Tom Steyer, a California billionaire, used two million dollars to support her elections. She did not condemn this.
This is not, however, the first time she has gone against her word. She had in 2010 urged a recommendation from End Citizens United. She pledged to support the End Citizens United fight against the billionaires’ donations to campaigns. Two days before this endorsement, Rosen uploaded a video on her YouTube channel. The video promoted the use of dark money in elections. She denied this claim.
Democrat Hiral Tipirneni of the West Valley congressional campaign has received support from the End Citizens United group. Together they would fight against the use of dark cash in politics. Democrat Hiral has been campaigning for a seat in the 8th District. She had rejected all the PAC Financial support in her campaigns. In her battles, she declares to put the people’s need ahead of all the corporate relations.
Tiffany Muller, the PAC’s president, was against Democrat Hiral’s decision. She claims that by rejecting the corporate PAC’s support, Hiral is likely to fail to achieve her promise to the citizens. Hiral argues that the employment of this secret money in politics has crumbled Washington. Fighting against the flow of such funds would make a significant impact on the state.
End Citizens United has recently supported Conor Lamb. He was running for a Democrat seat in the 18th District, Pennsylvania. The group helped him with an amount of $250,000. This amount was solely meant for advertisement support in favor of the candidate. The advertisements were mainly to expose the Republican Rick Saccone’s fraudulent actions. Mr. Saccone has been in suspicion for embezzlement of funds since he was elected as a state representative.
Mr. Conor is the ideal leader as per what the organization stands for. The organization continues to strive to fight against the effects of the massive amounts of money being driven into the country’s politics. They continue to publicize their fights through digital ads.
There have been numerous campaigns against dark money being used in elections. Many billionaires have continued supporting politicians on their ballots. The federal government can be confined within its constitutional limits. This is an excellent solution to minimize the influence of money in political activities.
