With no true accountability, these groups, on both sides of the political spectrum, are influencing your vote without disclosing their influence on our elected officials.

Wouldn’t you like to see the trail of meetings, discussions and money that got these groups to open their wallets for the politicians they are advocating? I would.

Demand that the politician who wants your vote signs a Sunlight Pledge to open their calendar and accounts to your scrutiny. Nothing less than supporting the politician willing to follow the Sunlight Pledge will change the game.
