Petition: Campaign finance limits now
Everyone's voice should be heard in our democracy – but that’s not happening right now. The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision was a terrible mistake. It's allowing big corporate donors to drown out the voice of everyday voters. Like you, I'm sick and tired of these billionaires running roughshod in our elections.
But what can we do about it?
Here's what: Oregon can lead the way. As Secretary of State, I’ll fight to reform Oregon’s campaign finance system. We can pass tough campaign finance limits that directly challenge Citizens United.
Time and again, Oregon has led the nation in a progressive direction -- women's suffrage, popular election of Senators, public beaches, the bottle bill, and more. It's time to do it again.
Let’s take a stand in Oregon: Corporations are not people and money is not speech!
Citizens United is wrong – and strong campaign finance limits in Oregon can overturn it.
