Make Federal Contractors Disclose Political Spending
Dear Mr. President,
You recently reiterated your support for a constitutional amendment to overturn decisions like Citizens United. In the meantime, there is something very concrete that you can do as president to alleviate one aspect of big money corrupting our elections.
Corporations that receive government contracts can secretly funnel untold sums to help elect (and re-elect) the very same lawmakers responsible for awarding those contracts.
You can and should sign an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending.
Companies like Lockheed Martin, Verizon and even subsidiaries of Koch Industries are awash in taxpayer money they receive from federal contracts. As you can imagine, the amount of money being spent to influence our elections by all the huge corporations that receive these contracts is staggering.
Mr. President, you have the authority to fight money-in-politics corruption and shine some much-needed light on this spending simply with the stroke of a pen.
The one click form below will send your personal message
(together with the petition text above)
