“The Koch brothers’ operation intends to spend $889 million in the run-up to the 2016 elections — a historic sum that in many ways would mark Charles and David Koch and their fellow conservative megadonors as more powerful than the official Republican Party.” -- Politico, 1/26/2015
Charles and David Koch, along with roughly 300 of their fellow “megadonors,” plan to spend $889 million to buy elections in 2016.
Citizens United opened the door to disastrous amounts of outside money in our elections. And the Koch network is busting right through with unprecedented spending plans.
Putting a stop to Citizens United is the first step in taking back our democracy. We cannot allow 300 people to have such an outsized say in our elections -- so we’re going to collect 300,000 signatures to oppose their outside cash.
Sign the petition:
300 megadonors should not be able to buy our elections. Citizens United opened the door to unbelievable amounts of outside spending in the democratic process -- and it’s time we slammed that door shut.
I am calling for an immediate end to the effects of Citizens United.
