President Obama, Close the Dark Money Corruption Loophole and Fight for Disclosure
Urge the President to Require Corporations that do Business with the Government to Disclose their Political Spending
Corporations that receive government contracts can secretly funnel untold sums to help elect (and re-elect) the very same lawmakers who are responsible for — you guessed it — awarding government contracts.
It’s a cycle of corruption enabled by a detestable loophole in election law.
But there’s good news: Closing the corrupting loophole doesn’t require an act of Congress. President Obama has the authority to fix the problem with the stroke of a pen.
Urge the president to sign an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending
Petition to President Obama:
We, the undersigned strongly support requiring corporations that bid for government contracts to disclose their campaign spending. Americans have a right to know that government contracts are being awarded based on merit, not money.
