MiP Our Focus:  Money in Politics (MiP)

Our democracy is failing as the money of corporations, special interests and very wealthy individuals enables candidates to run for office, win elections, and then, pass legislation favoring their contributors. This situation has been greatly exacerbated by Citizens United and other Supreme Court decisions that have eliminated campaign finance laws.  Read the LWVUS position on Money in Politics.
