End Citizens United Makes Key Endorsements Ahead Of 2018 midterm Elections

Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke is making a surprising run for the Texas U.S. Senate seat currently held by Ted Cruz, a corporate-cash-bloated politician who was once seen as impossible to beat. But recent polls show that O’Rourke is closing in on Cruz. Better yet, the plucky Congressman is doing it without accepting corporate cash or donations from Super PACs.

That’s why Beto O’Rourke has the endorsement of End Citizens United, a grassroots organization that is determined to get Big Money out of American politics.

End Citizens united was formed in 2015 as a direct result of the now notorious 2010 Supreme Court ruling that came to be known as Citizens United. It ran a wrecking ball through U.S. campaign finance regulations.

The result has been an enormous corruption of the American political system. End Citizens United says that, if average American voters want their votes to count and have their voices heard in Washington, Citizens United must be overturned.

One step toward that goal is the election of as many pro-reform candidates as possible. O’Rourke of Texas is one. Another is Jacky Rosen of Nevada. She currently holds Nevada’s 3rd District Congressional seat. Now she’s running to be a U.S. Senator. She also has been endorsed by ECU because she refuses Big Money and Dark Money contributions to her campaign.

Rep. Rosen is running against GOP fat-cat Sen. Dean Heller whom ECU lists among its “Big Money 20” — the worst offenders in Congress of campaign finance laws.

End Citizens United is also endorsing Elissa Slotkin. She is a former CIA agent seeking the 8th Congressional seat in Michigan. Slotkin’s opponent, incumbent Mike Bishop, is another member of the infamous Big Money 20.

Andy Kim running for Congress in New Jersey gets End Citizens United endorsement against incumbent Tom MacArthur. He has been called a “Poster Boy” for special interests after he cobbled together the cruel TrumpCare bill. Andy Kim is a Rhodes Scholar who refuses PAC and corporate cash. He is challenging MacArthur for New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional district slot.


End Citizens United Lodges Formal Complaint Against Rick Scott

End Citizens United is a Political Action Committee that is committed to the removal of big money from the political process in America. A recent move by the group is a complaint lodged against Senatorial candidate Rick Scott to the Federal Election Committee alleging that Scott has illegally used a “super PAC” to raise money for his campaign.

End Citizens maintains that Scott’s use of the super PAC is intended to circumvent limits the feds have placed on the number of campaign contributions a candidate can receive. To date, the super PAC that is a part of the complaint lodged against him has raised $78 million toward his campaign efforts.

A super PAC is allowed by law to raise as much money toward the campaign of a candidate as it chooses but cannot work directly with the candidate. End Citizens United says that he and the super Pac that he was chaired, the New Republican PAC, are presently in violation of this anti-coordination condition.

Adam Bozzi, Communications Director for End Citizens, says that Rick Scott has shown a total disregard for the law while being concerned only with his selfish ambitions to further his own political career. Bozzi went on to explain that Scott has developed a scheme that has allowed him to bypass applicable campaign donation restrictions by having money funneled into the coffers of New Republican that all involved pretends is intended for the president.

The campaign of Rick Scott has rejected all allegations made by End Citizens but had their argument countered when End Citizens United was able to provide documentation that seems to prove Scott has worked with New Republican directly in recent months. One obvious evidentiary fact End Citizens United was able to point out was that the New Republican website listed Scott as the PAC’s chairman as recent as January of this year.

End Citizens United’s quest to take money out of the political process began with the frustration members of the organization felt over a 2010 ruling by the United States Supreme Court on Citizens United. The group operates by attempting to assure that candidates are placed in positions of political office that agree with their views regarding the ruining of the American political process due to the proliferation of big money. End Citizens United will then work with these sympathetic politicians to overturn the Citizens United decision that allows political donations to be unlimited and undisclosed.
