Ann Ravel, Chair of California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC): Conclude investigating the secret $11M funneled into California

    1. Petition by

      Stop Special Exemptions

Last November, California voters defeated the deceptive Proposition 32, which proponents falsely claimed would ‘stop special interest money’. The hypocrisy behind Prop 32 became clear when proponents accepted an $11 million donation in October 2012 from 'Americans for Responsible Leadership', a Super PAC from Arizona which refused to disclose its donors.

Pressed by Common Cause and other good government groups, the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) sued to compel true disclosure of the donation. On November 5th, the day before the election, the committee that accepted the donation revealed that the $11 million had been funneled through two other out-of-state Super PACs, a violation of California law. However, they still refused to disclose the true source(s) of the money.

The FPPC has maintained an open investigation but has not given a timeline for when their investigation will be complete. We urge them to take action now!

The time has come for the FPPC to accelerate its investigation and force the Super PACs to reveal their donors. Californians deserve to know who attempted to buy an election and why. Please sign this petition to the FPPC and Chair Ann Ravel.

      It's time to clean up politics. Those of us with barely enough money to meet day to day living expenses need a fair shake. I play fair, it's time for big money to play fair.

      They will be back to attempt the same type of takeover again. Let's stop them now!
