MoveOn Sends Letter to Secretaries of State to Investigate No Labels for Misleading Voters

Washington, D.C. – As reported by The Messenger today, MoveOn Political Action is sending a letter to all secretaries of state to urge election officials to investigate No Labels’ electoral activities as the dark-money group attempts to qualify to appear on the ballot in all 50 states. MoveOn’s calls for an investigation follows Maine’s Secretary of State Shenna Bellows sending a cease-and-desist letter to No Labels last month due to complaints about No Labels’ organizers misleading Maine voters into changing their party affiliation status.

“Reports that No Labels is misleading voters, and potentially violating election laws, are deeply concerning and call into question the group’s entire operation,” said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting. “We urge election officials in every state to ensure voters are protected from No Label’s deception. No Labels should practice what they preach about uniting the country, stop misleading voters, and end their ill-advised and dangerous dark-money-funded third-party ticket.”

MoveOn is working with a broad range of Democratic organizations, including the moderate think tank Third Way, to stop No Labels from running a third-party “unity” presidential ticket, given the party’s misleading tactics, failure to disclose their donors, and their own polling that shows their efforts will put Donald Trump in office again.
