Outside funding has perverted our election process, largely due to the Citizens United decision. Corporations, unions, and even foreign entities can provide unlimited funds to try to buy elections. Their advertising is overwhelmingly negative, and often consists of half truths or outright lies. Senator Scott Brown and his challenger in the Massachusetts race for U.S. Senate signed an agreement in January that they call the “People’s Pledge” that has resulted in far less outside negative advertising. This petition urges U.S. Representative Scott Tipton and his challenger, Sal Pace, to create a similar agreement in their race for Colorado’s 3rd District.
