A day after the shutdown ended, Senator Ted Cruz moved on to his latest crusade: making Citizens United even worse.
Senator Cruz has just taken the extraordinary step of blocking a nominee to the FCC until he promises Cruz that he won’t require Super PACs to disclose their funders.
The 2010 Citizens United ruling paved the way for stealth Super PACs to bombard states with attack ads funded by dark money. Now, Senator Cruz and his Tea Party allies are trying to prevent accountability for their Super PAC funders. That’s just not right for our democracy.
You can help take a stand for clean, fair elections by demanding that Senator Cruz stop these political games.
