Support the DISCLOSE Act with Senator Begich

This petition had 1,338 supporters

Too much of what goes on in Washington goes on behind closed doors. That's bad news for Alaskans — we're thousands of miles away from those closed doors and we only get three members of Congress to safeguard our interests.

The Supreme Court's "Citizens United" decision allows unlimited anonymous money to be pumped into elections, giving the wealthy and powerful a big helping hand in keeping doors closed.

That's why Senator Mark Begich co-sponsored the DISCLOSE Act — to make sure that all that money flowing into elections under the Court's decision does so with transparency and accountability.

But Senate Republicans stopped the bill on a party-line vote, and regular people lost the day. Secret billionaire big spenders are running negative ads all over the country, trying to buy elections.

The DISCLOSE Act is an important tool for keeping Washington accountable. Sign the petition now to stand with Senator Begich in support of transparency and accountability in elections.
