Money In Politics

Due to a series of decisions by the United States Supreme Court that relax donation rules, elections have become less democratic and more susceptible to corruption. As a result of the shift, wealthy donors and special interest groups can buy influence among the representatives they help to elect -- all while keeping their identities and motives secret.

The real problem isn't how much is being spent -- it's knowing who spends and what they get in return. California Common Cause is working at the state and local level to level the playing field by pushing for campaign finance reforms that shed light on dark money and help bring power back to the people.
