Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

The Center for American Progress, Public Citizen, Free Speech For People, and Common Cause support this legislation. Our letter asks Congress to pass the “Get Foreign Money Out of U.S. Elections Act.”

The law will stop foreign-owned corporations from spending in American elections through their U.S. subsidiaries. It closes a loophole created by “Citizens United.”

We will send your email message to your senators and your Congressperson

The 2010 Supreme Court decision in “Citizens United” allows corporations to spend unlimited amounts to influence elections.

Following that decision, some foreign-owned companies — through their U.S. subsidiaries — donated large amounts to super PACs. In 2017, one company alone, Reynolds American, a subsidiary of the foreign-owned British American Tobacco, gave $1.4 million to those PACs.

Americans shouldn’t have to wonder who’s making donation decisions and whose interests are served by those contributions. The “Get Foreign Money Out of U.S. Elections Act” will alleviate the possibility of foreign influence in our politics. It will ban political donations from multinational companies at least partially owned by foreign nationals.

Pass the “Get Foreign Money Out of U.S. Elections Act” now.
