New Report Documents Big Donor Dominance in 2014 Congressional Elections

When: Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at 11:00am

Where: Ashburton Place, Boston (on patio, left of entrance steps)

Who: State Rep. Cory Atkins, Concord; Janet Domenitz, MASSPIRG Executive Director; Brenda Wright, Demos, Vice President Legal Strategies;  Pamela Wilmot, Common Cause/MA Executive Director, Sara Brady, MassVote, Policy Director; Anne Borg, League of Women Voters/MA Co-President. There will be representatives from Free Speech for People, Move to Amend, and other reform organizations.

What: As the fifth anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision approaches, MASSPIRG and Demos have co-authored a report, “The Money Chase: Moving from Big Donor Dominance to a Small Donor Democracy.” The report reveals the influence big money had in the 2014 midterms; organizations will call for various reforms which would promote small donors.
