Do you want legislation that “ends the scourge of dark money, shines a bright light of transparency on politics, and makes government more accountable to the will of voters”? Then this DISCLOSE Act is for you. Ever since the 2010 decision in Citizens United unleashed campaign contribution money calling it protected speech, one man one vote has been losing ground.
You’ll be heartened to hear U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Representative David Cicilline (D-RI) are advancing the issue on behalf of the American public.
