Billionaires shouldn’t be able to buy elections

I wanted to make sure you saw this. The New Yorker has obtained secret audio of a conference call between Mitch McConnell's policy advisor and several leaders of conservative groups, including the Koch-run group Stand Together, outlining their plans to kill the For the People Act.

Listen to the call here.

These people have no shame.

The big-dollar Super PACs have spent obscene amounts of money to undermine our democracy.

Rampant voter suppression. Partisan gerrymandering. Dark money in elections.

That's why they're afraid of the For the People Act. It will ban voter suppression, expand Vote by Mail, end partisan gerrymandering, take on dark money in our elections, empower small-dollar donors, and recharge the engine of our democracy.

It's an all hands on deck moment to save our by-the-people, for-the-people system of government. Republicans are already trying to ram through hundreds of voter suppression bills across the country.

Keep the conversation going on Facebook and share this important story with your friends and family.

In solidarity,

Peter
