End Citizens United (ECU) continues to be the voice of reason in the American political arena. Top of its agenda currently, is the question of whether Russia conspired with President Donald Trump to rig the last presidential election in his favor. This was fueled by the firing of James Comey, the former FBI Director. The organization is planning to seek answers to this pressing question through the Senate by pressurizing it to lobby for an independent investigation into the matter. If everything goes according to plan, the Senate will be pressurized from all angles, from media ads to grassroots mobilization, leaving it no other option but to act. This energized push has put several Republican senators in the spotlight, with plans of compelling them to support the investigations underway. Some of these senators include, among others, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Rob Portman of Ohio, Ronald Johnson of Wisconsin, Steve Daines of Montana, Susan Collins of Maine, and Dean Heller of Nevada.
The Progress this Far
According to Tiffany Muller, the End Citizen United’s principal, the American democracy is anchored on secure and transparent elections. He, therefore, pointed out that the concerns raised by the people regarding the last elections are genuine and ought to be addressed sufficiently. To do that, the Congress must select a nonpartisan investigations committee to dig deeper into the issue. If this doesn’t happen, Tiffany argued that the Americans would lose faith in the country’s electoral system. Tiffany’s sentiments are shared by more than 220 members of Congress from both sides of the political divide as well as Independents. Some are in support of an investigative committee while others see a special prosecutor as the best bet for the job. An extra 50 members raised concerns on how President Trump sacked James Comey, with majority suspecting something fishy in the whole saga.
End Citizen’s Support of Jon Ossoff
This new campaign is in line with End Citizens United’s continued push for sobriety in American politics. Formed with a motive of mobilizing liberal citizens to reject the Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision, ECU has since become a major player in the country’s politics. The organization successfully mobilized funds in support of liberal Democratic aspirants’ bid for Congress and Senate in last year’s election. Post-elections, End Citizen United continued to mobilize political funding for Democrats. In the run-up to next year’s special congressional election in Atlanta, the organization has put measures in place to ensure that Jon Ossoff, the Democrat candidate, scoops the seat. To this end, it has managed to raise half a billion dollars for his campaign, and more funding is in the pipeline. Ossoff has shaken the American political arena by managing to put up a serious campaign at only thirty years. End Citizen United views Ossoff as the hope that can deliver the seat from Republicans, bearing in mind that it was previously occupied by Tom Price, the Secretary in charge of Health and Human Services.
