Rep. Ted Deutch (FL-22) has been a long-time advocate for getting big money out of politics and protecting voting rights. His district includes Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and Deutch has been a strong leader in standing up to the gun lobby and working to pass gun safety measures. Deutch chairs the House Ethics Committee and serves as Vice-Chair of the Democracy Reform Task Force.
In office, Deutch helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. In the current Congress, Deutch introduced the Democracy for All Amendment, a constitutional amendment aimed at overturning Citizens United. Deutch has introduced a similar version of this bill in every Congress since 2011.
