End Citizen United is a political committee that has a mission of terminating the use of large sums of money in politics and solve the manipulated political structure by holding many reform campaigns in the finance, developing and authorizing national ballot measures and raising the problem in the national dialogue. End Citizen United has also collaborated with other organizations to overturn Citizen United and terminate the unlimited and secret usage of money in the United States politics. To accomplish that mission, End Citizen United will appoint candidates that support reforms, will raise the matter of using foreign money in politics to a critical national issue and involving the ordinary members to show how money influences the politics. The political committee also has a role of enlightening the public about the matter.
In the recent past, End Citizen United learned that a Russian company that is related to Kremlin bought ads that had a purpose of manipulating the previous presidential election. As a result of this issue, End Citizen United recognized that the United States elections laws were not functioning well since it is an offense to spend foreign money on political campaigns.
Robert Mueller who is a special counsel, has been mandated by the committee to investigate whether Donald Trump involved the Russians in manipulating the 2016 elections. The committee believes that Robert will get deep into the matter and come up with proper findings. The only thing that is worrying the board is whether Washington will be ready to end foreign influence in the United States election in future.
It is not only the foreign governments that take advantage of the feeble election laws but also prominent organizations or wealthy individuals can influence the US politics. For instance, a Chinese company donated 1.3 million dollars to Super PAC. Similarly, a wealthy Mexican businessman funded the Super PAC with vast sums of money. Even though the committee is conscious of the foreign entities that were involved in the previous campaigns, it speculates that more unrecognized external organizations and individuals could have participated in altering the outcomes of the election. The committee also thinks that there is a possibility that foreign governments could have spent ten million dollars to manipulate the polls.
End Citizen United believes that all those foreign donations are just beginning with many subsequent contributions in the proceeding elections. They also think that the government has the necessary solutions to the issue but lacks the will to solve it. Learn more:https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/end-citizens-united
