The rise of the Super PACs, made possible by misguided U.S. Supreme Court decisions, including Citizens United, are flooding our elections with special interest cash.
Even in Vermont, a Super PAC funded almost entirely by a single individual spent nearly $1 million to elect or defeat state candidates in the 2012 election season.
That’s why VPIRG is calling for reform now. We’re already working with state leaders on a package of reforms we’ll ask legislators to consider. Join the petition calling for campaign reform today.
