Series of scandals and corruption out of Washington affirm voters belief that we must clean up Congress now

Mel Hall (IN-02) today unveiled a bold reform agenda aimed at ending the culture of corruption in Washington. The agenda outlines his pledge to get corporate PAC money out of elections and curbing the influence of Big Money in politics.

His reform agenda is aimed at shining a light on unlimited, secret money, and helping to unrig the system. Voters in his district are hungry for reform and that’s exactly what he’s offering.”
