Executive Ethics

Support for strong ethics laws and ethics enforcement is one of Common Cause’s core values. From the Watergate scandal, when we pushed to have President Nixon brought before the grand jury investigating his administration, to our 2011 call on President Obama to end his staff’s clandestine meetings with lobbyists, to our plea that President-elect Donald Trump divest himself of his business holdings to safeguard against conflicts of interest, Common Cause has led the fight for tougher ethical standards in the executive branch of government.
