End Citizens United is a money-in-politics organization that seeks to terminate the influence of rich icons on American politics. In mid may, major media houses around the world featured news about the firing of FBI director James Comey by President Donald Trump. Alongside the similar-minded group, Every Voice, End Citizen is set to instigate senators to investigate Donald Trump’s election into office, citing a possibility of Russia’s interference in the election’s final results. They have launched an Independent Investigation Now campaign which airs ads in media houses and sets off support from the grassroots.
So far, the senators set to be contacted to support the campaign are Steve Daines, Jeff Flake, Dean Heller, Ron Johnson, Ron Porman, Pat Toomey, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. Additionally, the organizations have an aim of prompting citizens to reach their Senators for the same by creating a Call Your Senator campaign. The executive director and president of End Citizen stated that Americans have every right to understand the intricacies of the security status of their nation. Tiffany Muller added that it is prudent that the Congress sets up a commission to executive an independent investigation immediately. The CEO and president of Every Voice pointed out that getting senators to oversee an independent investigation of Russia’s role in the 2016 elections will give Americans closure about their future with the current president.
At the beginning of 2017, End Citizen United organized a donation event that saw 40,000 new people contribute to the collected $4 million. The donation followed a campaign to support Jon Ossoff, a Democrat candidate in Georgia. The PAC’s supporters believe that the current Republican president earned his position through rigging and have a determination to support transparent political movements in future. Speculations by a former political director in the Democratic Party indicate that the group has the intent of backing Jon Tester and Sherrod Brown in the 2018 political endeavors of Montana.
The spokesman of End Citizen United, Adam Bozzi, pointed out that the foundation has formidable relationships with other groups on the same course. One instance of the cooperation between End Citizens United and these group include the campaign that urged Republican senators not to vote for Betsy DeVos as Donald Trump’s education secretary.
End Citizen began operating to negate the Supreme Court’s decision to allow unions and organizations to donate to Super PACS. End Citizen United believes that rich individuals and foundations have the potential to sway the political climate of the country with humungous donations. Consequentially, the organization does not accept contributions that exceed 5000 from a single donor. Despite this self-imposed limit, End Citizen United ranked among the top donors supporting the Democratic Party in the 2016 political campaigns.
