Johnson continues to protect corrupt system, secret spending 

Senator Ron Johnson just voted (again) against the DISCLOSE Act, allowing dark money to continue to corrupt our politics and allowing billionaires and corporations to continue to buy our elections.

“It’s no surprise that Ron Johnson voted to protect his wealthy dark money allies. During his time in office, he’s taken over $1 million from Big Oil and Big Pharma and benefited from millions in dark money spending. He then turned around and voted to protect those same corporations and billionaires from paying what they owe in taxes, including three donors he specifically got a $215 million tax handout for.”said End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller. “Johnson knows that he and his billionaire friends benefit from dark money in our elections, and that’s exactly why he voted to keep it in place today.”


  • Will shine a light on the flood of dark money in elections by requiring organizations that engage in electioneering – including super PACs and 501(c)(4) dark money groups – to disclose the identities of donors who have given them $10,000 or more during an election cycle.

  • Requires companies spending money in elections to disclose their true owners, so election officials and the public know who is behind the spending and stops foreign actors from meddling in our elections.

  • Is supported by 92% of voters

Ron Johnson has voted against the DISCLOSE Act 9 times now, including 6 times in just the past two years.
