MoveOn's Reaction to the McCutcheon Decision

Statement by Anna Galland, executive director of MoveOn.org Civic Action, responding to the Supreme Court’s ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC which struck down aggregate limits on campaign spending by an individual:

The Supreme Court’s decision in McCutcheon v. FEC has seriously threatened our democracy by allowing ultra-rich individuals like Shaun McCutcheon and the Koch brothers to effectively buy as many members of Congress as their bank accounts allow.

The Roberts Court has weakened America’s democracy and contributed to a system of legalized bribery by allowing big money to swamp the voices of regular Americans and dramatically alter the outcome of elections.

MoveOn members are committed to reclaiming our democracy by working to overturn this decision and Citizens United and by advocating for comprehensive campaign finance reform.
