By Outlaw Dirty Money 2020
Outlaw Dirty Money today announced that two national democracy reform organizations, End Citizens United and Voters’ Right to Know, have endorsed the campaign’s 2020 ballot initiative. The endorsements come after ODM’s successful launch and a bi-partisan rollout of initial endorsements from current and former elected officials.
“Arizona voters overwhelmingly support our initiative and we’re not surprised that others are taking notice,” said Terry Goddard, Co-Chair of Outlaw Dirty Money. “Whenever Arizonans have the chance to vote in favor of Outlawing Dirty Money, they do. With the support of thousands of Arizonans and a growing grassroots army of volunteers, we’re confident our movement will be successful.”
“The flood of dark money in politics is drowning out the voices of Arizona families, and it’s skewing policy outcomes to benefit mega-donors and corporate special interests,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller. “The Outlaw Dirty Money amendment will shine a much-needed light on unlimited and undisclosed political spending in Arizona. End Citizens United is proud to endorse the amendment, and we look forward to connecting our Arizona members to the campaign to fight back against the corrupting influence of Big Money.”
“With special interests spending millions in secret money to keep elections tipped in their favor, Arizona voters have a right to know who’s really behind the campaigns that seek to influence the way they vote.” said VRTK Executive Director Jay Costa. “The Outlaw Dirty Money amendment is a common sense measure that will expose secret money and ensure that government is working for everyday Arizonans, not special interests.”
End Citizens United is the nation’s largest grassroots movement advocating for campaign finance reform, with more than four million members nationwide.
Voters’ Right to Know is a nonpartisan effort to advance effective policy surrounding the transparency of political spending.#
