End Secret Money in New Jersey Elections

download.jpg

Democracy requires the ability to “follow the money.”  Our elections must not be influenced by persons or groups that secretly fund campaign messages. If donations are not disclosed, the potential for favors and corruption to go undetected is likely, a temptation that must be avoided. We need to insist that the money that funds Super PACS, and other political groups active in campaigns, be disclosed to the public.

Our NJ Legislature is already on the record in support of a Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United, the US Supreme Court ruling that allows for free and unlimited spending by corporations in our elections. Since it will take a constitutional amendment to remedy Citizens United, we must reduce the harm by bringing all campaign contributions into the light of day. 

It has been 5 years since the Supreme Court gave big money a megaphone to drown out the free speech of the individual voter. 

Send the message to our New Jersey Legislators: stop secret donations.

We the Undersigned, New Jersey voters,  must know who is trying to influence the outcome of elections. We demand full campaign funding disclosure and urge our NJ legislators to pass the two identical disclosure bills now under consideration:A227 and the reintroduced S2616. The disclosure bills MUST be passed and in place for the next election. Democracy demands nothing less than to know to whom our lawmakers are accountable.
