Protect U.S. Elections from Foreign Attack

The Trump family has acknowledged that Russia offered secret “dirt” on Donald Trump’s opponent in the 2016 presidential election, former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.  Mr.
Trump, Jr. was told Russia was offering him this information as part of its support for his father’s candidacy.  Instead of reacting with concern or alarm that a foreign power was trying to meddle in a domestic U.S. election, Mr. Trump, Jr. said he would “love”

Cosponsor H.R. 5409, Stop Zombie Campaign Spending!

You might have seen the recent reporting regarding roughly 100 “zombie campaigns” still spending campaign cash long after the candidate is no longer seeking office.  It is unconscionable for congressional campaign accounts to live on years after a member

for decades and use those funds for personal use.
