Citizens for Fair Elections started this petition to Facebook and

WHEREAS Facebook is used by malicious foreign powers as the primary means of distributing false/misleading political information via advertising and sponsored posts, we the undersigned demand that Facebook ban all political advertising/sponsored posts. This ban should cover covers ads intended to influence elections, including ballot measures, as well as those that address issues of national importance.

WE the undersigned demand that Facebook maintain this ban until the company can demonstrate that it has a means of thoroughly reviewing all paid/promoted posts and advertisements to ensure that those who are promoting/advertising political messages comply with common sense requirements.

These requirements must include provisions to protect the US voting public from:

a) foreign manipulation and interference

b) the spreading of false/misleading information

c) the promotion of messages from false accounts

d) the use of advertising messages to identify and track political adversaries 

e) the loss of privacy that may be associated with responding to advertising designed to provoke an emotional response.

THIS BAN should be implemented within the next 30 days and remain in effect through the 2020 presidential elections at a minimum and remain in place until the above listed protections are in place.
