McCaskill Announces Opposition to Kavanaugh, Cites Judge’s Position on Dark Money and Ability of Foreign Interests to Influence Elections

End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller released the following statement on Senator Claire McCaskill’s announcement that she will oppose Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination:

“Judge Kavanaugh’s record indicates he would give mega-donors and secretive special interests even more undue influence over politicians and would oppose transparency in political spending, making it harder to keep foreign money out of our campaigns. That’s the exact opposite of what Missourians want. Missouri has seen the damage that disastrous Supreme Court decisions, like Citizens United, have caused, and the dysfunction they create in Washington. We need a justice who will stand up for Missouri families and give them a real voice in our democracy. ECU thanks Senator McCaskill for her leadership and commitment to reining in the influence of unlimited, undisclosed money in politics.”
