End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller released the following statement praising Rep. Joe Kennedy (MA-04) for his announcement to reject corporate PAC money:
“The 2018 elections were a testament to the passion and enthusiasm voters have for representation that can’t be bought and paid for. By rejecting corporate PAC money, Rep. Joe Kennedy is proving to Bay State families that he’s listening to their concerns and that he’s only accountable to them. He’s demonstrating to his constituents that he will always put them first.
“Our campaign finance system is broken, and we can’t make progress on critical issues like combating climate change and gun violence, or lowering prescription drug prices until we break the stranglehold that corporate special interests have over Congress. End Citizens United applauds Rep. Kennedy for his bold leadership and commitment to fixing our broken political system in Washington.”
