Today, however, I call your attention to the American Anti-Corruption Act which I'd like to ask you to support, as I do.
When you visit the website to learn more about the Act, you will notice that support at this early stage of the process already includes people from a wide range of backgrounds. Those include Trevor Potter (former Federal Elections Commission chairman), along with a GOP strategist, a leader of Occupy Los Angeles, an investment banker, a Tea Party leader and hundreds (of thousands) of others.
Key provisions of the Act include:
- Stop politicians from taking bribes
- Limit super PAC contributions and “coordination”
- Prevent job offers as bribes
- Call all people who lobby, lobbyists
- Limit lobbyist donations
- End secret money
- Empower all voters with a tax rebate
- Disclose “bundling”
- Enforce the rules
There's a plan (which starts with the American people, not Congress). The Act has been carefully crafted and analyzed by Constitutional scholars and attorneys.
Please check out the American Anti-Corruption Act and join me as a co-sponsor.
