Amend 2012

January 18, 2012

Research & Reports

Deep Drilling Deep Pockets

The rapid spread of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," in Ohio has been accompanied by a surge in political expenditures by the natural gas industry. From July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013, the natural gas industry and companies engaged in fracking gave more than $1.8 million to Ohio elected officials, candidates, and political parties. The industrious lobbyists also reported $43,000 in expenditures in Ohio for 2011-2012. Ohio requires lobbyists to report money spent on gifts, meals, and travel for legislators, but does not require them to report how much compensation they receive from each of their clients.

Individual and PAC Giving to Women Candidates

December 8, 2016

With the support of a Network Grant from the Democracy Fund, Representation2020 has teamed up with the Center for Responsive Politics and Common Cause Education Fund to research PAC and donor giving to male and female candidates and to devise strategies to challenge them to set targets for the percentage - or overall amount - that they give to women candidates. The following report is designed to create greater transparency on how political giving affects the universe of viable candidates, to draw attention to the key gatekeeper role played by major campaign funders and to design strategies that encourage donors, PACs, political parties and others to reexamine how and when they give to female candidates.
