Tech News Spy published an article recently by Heidi Harris entitled “End Citizens United Explains Why We Need to Re-Evaluate Our Campaign Finance Rules” discussing the recent revelations of Russian involvement in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Harris discusses that the recent expose of the Russian company with ties to Kremlin and how they spent at least $100,000 on Facebook ads to influence the presidential election. Though it is currently undecided if Trump’s team is directly involved, it is clear that the government has been unwilling to put their foot down and end foreign intervention in U.S. elections.

Many right-wing allies and politicians have been sabotaging the laws surrounding campaign finance for decades. They have created legal loopholes where individuals and corporations can easily donate huge sums to political campaigns without transparency or accountability. This can easily change the outcomes of the elections because they donate huge amounts of money to the candidates they feel would favor their causes, placing political pressure and essentially rigging the system.

The purchase of Facebook ads by a foreign government is just the beginning. Chinese nationalists also used a company to take advantage of the loophole and donate more than a million dollars to a Super PAC. A Mexican businessman has similarly been convicted of using a shell organization to donate a huge amount to a Super PAC.

However, there are a variety of bills and ideas that Congress could pass to end the legal loopholes which allow foreign entities to influence American politics. The DISCLOSE Act would necessitate the disclosure of political spending by both private and public entities like corporations as well as individuals. The By the People Reform Package, which includes the Get Money Out of U.S. Elections Act, would close loopholes and create a Constitutional amendment that would prevent foreign governments from spending money and influencing the American election process.

Unfortunately, there are a variety of Republicans and right-wing allies that have been filibustering these acts, preventing the loopholes from being closed. End Citizens United, a Political Action Committee, reveals why they need to re-evaluate their position.

End Citizens United was created in 2010 after the Supreme court ruling on the Citizens United v. F.E.C. Their ruling created a legal way for corporations and billionaires to donate unlimited and untraceable money to special interests and to American Elections.

End Citizens United is seeking to fight against the ruling, revealing the issues of no accountability or transparency of billionaires and corporations who seek to tip the balance of political power to their side.
