Our fight to end secret money in electionsSubmitted by Elisabeth Thu Nov 04 2010 14:33:00 GMT-0400 (EDT)
Millions of American voters went to the polls on Tuesday in a great display of civic responsibility and participation. And while the League is proud — not just of voters but of our own powerful contributions to election 2010 — we cannot ignore the tens of millions of dollars spent in secret this election season.
As we continue to digest the results from Tuesday’s elections, I wanted to pass along our statement on the next steps needed to fix secret cash in American elections. We will not slow down in our work to demand disclosure requirements from Congress. The future of our nation’s elections depends on it.
