End Citizens United Comes up With Cash From Voters


Even though there are several political personalities that stand on the side of big money in campaigning policies, four names in particular deserve attention as they pertain to the state of California. These state representatives are said to be in vulnerable positions according to the analysis of certain minds with their eyes on upcoming election seasons. This potential vulnerability is, in part, due to their records in house votes in past and political trends resulting from other factors.

These four representatives from California are Mimi Walters, Dana Rohrabacher, Darrell Issa and Duncan Hunter. Two of these public servants are under an unusual and heightened level of scrutiny, due to questionable dealings in their political actions. Hunter’s record has an investigation for misappropriation of funds attached to it, and Issa’s acceptance of Telecom funds smells a little fishy to some. The PAC (Political Action Committee) End Citizens United (ECU) has these four representatives named in their list of twenty that present a serious problem when it comes to fair in campaign spending. And, to make sure that truth, justice and the American way are upheld, ECU is willing to fight fire with fire to lite a fire under millions of independent voters, so to speak.

Fortunately, their record shows that they are more than capable of achieving these goals and getting results for the public at large. Each year that this PAC operates its leaders, supporters and members collectively gather millions of dollars for campaign finance reform, which may look like a discrepancy on the surface but is not. The difference between the funds that ECU makes use of and the is its source. Instead of using monies from corporations without any regulation, its financial backing is made up of individual contributions. This may seem like splitting hairs when it comes to purpose and functionality, but it actually makes a huge difference in the ways voices are carried in the political arena. The organization itself is actually a reaction to a Supreme Court decision which allows corporations to be seen as persons, therefore granting granting them the right to contribute to campaigns.
