Support Clean Elections Reform
DeLay and Abramoff were just the beginning. New scandals involving the rotten triangle of special interest lobbyists, wealthy donors, and our elected officials continue to break while we pay the price for this "pay-to-play" political system.
But there is a real solution: Clean Elections campaign reform. Already working in 7 states and 2 cities, Clean Elections helps keep politicians working for the voters and not for the special interests and their lobbyists by providing public campaign funding to qualified candidates that agree to forgo private contributions and follow strict spending limits.
It's time to bring back the power of citizens to elect representatives not bought and paid for by special interest lobbyists and big-money donors. Join us in supporting Clean Elections now.

It's time to end the era of influence peddling, "pay-to-play" politics in Washington, D.C. By enacting a system of full public financing for elections, we can sever the cord between politicians and the big-money interests and their lobbyists who fund campaigns.
The Clean Money, Clean Elections Act (HR 3099), introduced by Reps. John Tierney (D-MA) and Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), goes farther than any campaign reform proposal currently on the table in Washington, DC. It would bring a proven system of campaign finance reform to the federal level, freeing politicians from the burdens of constant fundraising and helping to restore the people's faith in our elected officials.
