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 identity and motives secret. 

We should be able to follow the money.  The real problem isn’t how much is being spent – it’s knowing who spends and what they get in return.  Common Cause Ohio is working to push campaign finance reforms that shed light on dark money and help bring power back to the people.
