TBOR California Coordinator featured in American Thinker

August 19, 2020

The whole purpose behind representation is to ensure that elected officials are beholden to their voters. But the source of their campaign funds force these officials to court the interests of a select few, the wealthiest of their donors, the neo-nobility of America. Dark money, secret political spending funneled through groups like LLCs to avoid disclosure and scrutiny for conflicts of interest, will still have a huge influence on the fate of Boyle Heights, Salt Lake City, and other parts of the […]

TBOR Executive Director Discusses Speakers Arrest and Need to Ban Dark Money in Columbus Dispatch

July 31, 2020

The problem with funneling tens of millions through secret channels in the past decade is that, in the short term, it lets the politicians have their cake and eat it, too. As they line at least their allies’ campaign coffers or in some cases even their own pockets with secret money that no one knows about, nothing will stop unless they get arrested on bribery charges.

A coalition of 20 organizations, from across the ideological spectrum, sent letters to both the Trump and Biden campaigns on Tuesday requesting they disclose their most prolific “bundlers” — the rich and well-connected people whom politicians rely on to collect donations from their friends and business associates. While federal law does not require presidential candidates to name their bundlers, unless they are registered lobbyists, it has long been a […]

South Florida Coordinator Wayne Rossiter Featured in Florida Politics

May 15, 2020

The core disease in our system of government is pay to play politics, where big donors get special favors, such as a Fortune 500 corporation stealing millions of dollars from a stimulus package set up to help small business owners across America who had to shut down operations so we can flatten the Coronavirus curve. How did these behemoth companies already have their applications submitted to get these small business stimulus funds on day one, unless someone in government gave […]

Tri-State Coordinator Pins Second Op-Ed in IBTimes

March 25, 2020

“I believe the simplest way to blunt the impact of transactional donations is to incentivize ordinary citizens to make small donations that can, in aggregate, compete with the money from transactional donors. New Jersey should offer taxpayers a refundable tax credit of up to $25 per candidate with an aggregate limit of $100 per year for donations made to state or local campaigns. The tax credit would encourage small donors while making it possible for campaigns to win without the […]
