Require Corporation & PACs to Disclose Campaign Funding

The Citizens United decision in 2010 allowed corporations and special interest groups to pour unlimited sums into campaign- spending without ever having to publicly disclose these expenditures.  This “dark money” is corrupting our federal elections
and endangering the foundation of our democracy.  Everyday citizens no longer have an equal say or the benefit of a fair, transparent political system.  Instead, a few select wealthy groups and individuals are bankrolling the majority of campaign-related contributions,
giving them an undue and unfair influence in our nation’s politics.

Become an Original Co-Sponsor of the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2017 (v. 6)

We are respectfully requesting that you co-sponsor The Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2017.
In the Shelby County decision, the Supreme Court gutted Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA) by invalidating its jurisdictional coverage formula. We must protect the important progress made since the courageous Foot Soldiers of the Voting
Rights Movement dared to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge more than 50 years ago. The Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2017 takes an expansive and comprehensive view of the need to preserve access to the voting booth and will offer more protection to more people
in more states.

Require the President and Presidential Nominees to Disclose their Tax Returns (v. 3)

I invite you to cosponsor H.R. 305, the Presidential Tax Transparency Act, which requires presidents and presidential nominees of major parties to publicly disclose their previous three years of federal tax returns with the Office of Government
Ethics or the Federal Election Commission.
Those who seek or hold the highest office in the land should be open and transparent with the American people about their tax returns. Tax returns contain vital information, such as were any taxes paid, were any charitable contributions made, were tax loopholes
taken advantage of, and are any assets kept offshore, and what debts are owed, and to whom.
For decades, Presidents and candidates have disclosed their tax returns voluntarily but this bipartisan practice has never been required by law. The
Presidential Tax Transparency Act writes this important disclosure tradition into law by requiring sitting presidents to file their tax returns annually, and by requiring nominees to disclose their returns within 15 days of receiving their party’s
nomination.
For more information or to add your name as a cosponsor, please contact Paul Beck of my staff at 225-8104.
Sincerely,
Anna G. Eshoo
