End Citizens United Takes on Florida Governor Rick Scott

Political action committee End Citizens United is flexing its strong and far-reaching muscles again and this time it is going after Florida Governor Rick Scott. The PAC recently filed an official complaining with the Federal Election Commision (FEC) alleging that Scott is engaging in illegal activities in an effort to support campaign for Senator of Florida. The group states that Scott is using a Super PAC in an attempt to circumvent federal laws that limit direct contributions into the coffers of candidates.

The divisive candidate has reported contributions of approximately $78 million thus far in his bid to move from a governor to Senator. Although it is within legal rights for a super PAC to raise money without limits, the regulations strictly prohibit working directly with any campaign or individual. Legal officials at End Citizens United allege that Scott is working with New Republican PAC in violation of this anti-coordination provision. New Republican and Scott go way back, as Scott had been chairman of the PAC before he announced his intent to run for Senate. How to Reverse Citizens United.

Scott’s campaign has continued to deny these accusations, stating that he has parted ways with the group in advance of his campaign. Adam Bozzi with End Citizens United is not buying Scott’s story. The Communications Director said that Scott is merely interested in advancing political career rather than complying with the law. Bozzi went so far as to allege that the super PAC was created as a means of helping Scott get around the crucial campaign finance laws that his PAC works so hard to uphold in an effort to funnel money into his own personal campaign.

End Citizens United has put a priority on defeating Scott at the polls this November, as they believe he is a threat to campaign finance reform legislation. There has been plentiful evidence in recent months that point to Scott’s direct involvement with New Republican including proof that a recent poll regarding Scott was sponsored and paid for by New Republican. By going after Scott, End Citizens United is taking one step in the bigger process of overturning the landmark 2010 Supreme Court case that encourages big donorship in the political system, leading to widespread corruption and unfair campaign practices.

End Citizens United Backs Katie Porter

You have to be someone of excellent character and integrity to make a project on EMILY’s List’s, namely WOMEN VOTE!, and End Citizens United pay attention to you. Of course, it is not the attention that would make a person noteworthy. However, the reasons why these organizations would put some energy into raising awareness for anyone is intriguing, to say the least.

For voters in California’s 45th congressional district, Katie Porter fits the bill nicely. One good reason why she holds awesome potential for the job is her career as a UC Irvine Law professor and a servant of the everyday citizen. At times, she conflicts with the interest of Wall Street big-banking clans. As a matter of fact, she has decades of experience, expertise and service in her record.

Perhaps most importantly and fittingly, she refuses to take campaign donations from corporate PAC organizations. Porter has the endorsements of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Kamala Harris, for her progressive stance in politics. She is a staunch advocate for investment in public education. And, she absolutely sees the value in the establishment of Planned Parenthood and the Affordable Care Act.

The attention Katie Porter garnishes from WOMEN VOTE and ECU is a direct mail and digital advertising campaign platform. This platform’s purpose is to introduce Porter to the building public and educate them on her goals. The campaign itself is looking for a very particular set of Voters. It intends to reach Democratic women who are also unaffiliated and under the age of 30.

The true target audience are those who voted in the 2016 general election and also in a following Primary election. The net casted also allows for these female voters who took part in a 2014 or 2012 Primary. Just for a good measure, the eight-piece plans includes voters who restistered in November of 2016. Its target is more than 200,000 different voters in 50,000 different households.

It is a fairly huge project which requires a good amount of resources. However, both of these organizations are more than capable of handling the task through cooperation. WOMEN VOTE! operates independently since 1995, and End Citizens United continues to make waves and push progress year after year in politics. Katie Porter could not ask for a better source of campaign recognition. She also has a fair amount of personal interest in the current events of politics and social affairs, as a mother.

End Citizens United Challenge The Legality And Fairness Of Election Finance Regulations

The legality of the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision has always been questioned by independents and left-leaning individuals who feel the mega-donors and special interest groups which have caused issues for a number of years by building the campaign funds of Republicans unfairly. There are many aspects of the 2010 ruling which End Citizens United, a traditional PAC allowing members to provide just $5,000 per election cycle in funding, include the fact many aspects of special interest group funding remain hidden from the public.

End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller believes she has the ability to build a brighter future for the people of the U.S. who wish to return the election finance regulations to a level playing field. Muller has headed a number of initiatives in the short life of ECU which was established in 2015 and has seen more than 70 independents and Democrats sign an election finance pledge created by Muller explaining they will not accept special interest finding during this election cycle.

The Citizens United decision was originally taken in 2010 after a group bearing the name of the decision attempted to pay for the broadcast of the documentary, “Hillary: The Movie.” A challenge was made about the broadcasting of the movie as no details were provided about the funding behind Citizens United or exactly who was paying for the broadcast of the production; the legal challenges eventually led to a 5-4 Supreme Court decision stating political donors did not need to provide details of their allegiance or just where funding for politicians campaigns was coming from.

Despite the strong rebuttal of the decision by left-leaning judges on the Supreme Court, the decision has remained in place and groups such as End Citizens United are the only ones now fighting to protect the remaining election finance regulations. The damage caused by the Citizens United decision has been seen on many levels as Tiffany Muller believes the major effect of the decision has been to encourage a greater number of Republicans to accept funding from groups such as the Koch Brothers to further the interest of donors. In supporting Democrats and independents friendly to their cause, End Citizens United hope to enact a change in the political makeup of Washington D.C. and place power back in the hands of the American electorate once again.
