LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Getting corporate money out of our elections

A Constitutional Amendment has been introduced in Congress that would overturn the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court which allows corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence our elections. Corporate money is threatening our democracy by drowning out the voices of the people.

Please contact our Congressman Tom McClintock and urge him to support H.J Res. 78 and become a co-sponsor.

Getting corporate money out of our elections is essential to protect the basic premise of government by and for the people.
