Take Action: Tell Your US Senators to Support the DISCLOSE Act of 2012

From:  ACTION ALERT: Where is the MONEY Coming From?  |  League of Women Voters

  • Already in this election cycle we have seen a slew of money from secret donors, corporations and special interests.

  • If Congress does not act to clean up our election finance system, 2012 will be known as the year of the Super PAC, and voters will be deprived of the information they need to make informed decisions in this election.

  • Congress can act to close the floodgates against secret big-money special interests in our elections. The DISCLOSE Act of 2012 is moving in the Senate and it would require full transparency and let the sunlight in.

*  If you have the capacity to do so, call your members of Congress' offices.  Making a personal, direct phone call to their staff, as one of their constituents, is a more powerful way to contact them.  U.S. Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121.
