From the Globe: Bill Pushed by Common Cause Would Rein in state GOP Fundraisng

Posted on May 20, 2016


Ever since news broke of the state GOP exploiting a loophole in a law to funnel big donor dollars from their federal account into local campaigns, we've been at work seeking to fix this problem. And today, the Boston Globe published a story on our work to close the loophole and preserve the integrity of Massachusetts campaign finance laws.

From the article:

"Pam Wilmot, executive director of Common Cause, said the bill is critical to her organization’s mission to make sure the average citizen has a bigger voice in politics and to reduce the power of special interests. “The loophole the Republican Party has been exploiting to double those limits, or even expand them sixfold, needs to be closed in order to preserve the integrity of Massachusetts campaign finance laws,’’ she said. “The legislation we put forward will do that.”
