Statement from Jill Linta:
I’m proud to announce that I have been endorsed by End Citizens United and its state level group, Fight for Reform. I’m running to represent the PEOPLE of the 106, not big money donors and lobbyists.
The Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. F.E.C. has completely changed the landscape of American elections. It further established the legal basis for the idea that “corporations are people” and opened the door for billionaires and special interests to spend unlimited, untraceable money in America’s elections. Now, there’s no accountability at all. No transparency. We know that billionaires (like the Koch Brothers) and corporations are trying to tip the balance of political power in their favor, but it doesn’t stop there.
Established March 1st, 2015, End Citizens United is a Political Action Committee funded by grassroots donors. We are dedicated to countering the disastrous effects of Citizens United and reforming our campaign finance system.
We’ll show elected officials, candidates, voters, and the press that the grassroots are fighting back with force against the increasing brazenness of billionaires trying to buy our elections. This will be key to building a broad coalition working towards campaign finance reform and pressuring lawmakers to take action.
