More than Impeachment: Steyer Now Funding Soros-Founded Immigrant PAC

February 28, 2018

AUBURN, AL- Liberal mega-donor Tom Steyer continues to expand his profile ahead of a possible 2020 presidential run. The largest donor of the 2016 election cycle, he has already increased his national footprint with an 8-figure ad campaign aimed at impeaching President Trump. With ads featuring himself on camera, it is fair to speculate whether Steyer has his sights set on the highest office in the land. Now, his efforts have expanded to funding the George Soros founded “Immigrant Voters […]

OpEd: Fix it, America

January 14, 2018

Take Back Executive Director John Pudner penned the following OpEd on money in politics for the Concord Monitor: Two years ago, I was sludging through New Hampshire snow drifts, just before the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

April 26, 2017

USA Today: Trump can’t ‘drain the swamp’ without reform at the FEC

February 28, 2017

A central tenet of President Donald Trump’s campaign was his promise to “restore law and order” by enforcing the laws of the land. But that’s not likely going to include campaign finance laws, or telling the Federal Election Commission to do its job. Former Santa Clara County counsel Ann Ravel announced last week that she’s resigning from the commission effective March 1, having concluded that there’s nothing she can do to alter the dysfunction permeating what’s supposed to be a […]

Another nonprofit, Take Back Our Republic, which seeks to increase conservative support for stronger ethics and campaign finance laws, said Trump’s announced actions were less than ideal but indicated that the president-elect was at least taking seriously the question of possible conflicts of interest. “I am disappointed a more aggressive plan for full divestiture into a blind trust was not pursued,” said a statement from the group’s executive director, John Pudner, a former Republican political consultant.
