This is it - the dark money bill that will entirely rewrite campaign finance law in AZ is about to be made law and will change elections in Arizona as we know it. WE NEED YOU TO HELP US FIGHT BACK.

WE ARE URGING ALL OF OUR SUPPORTERS TO TELL SECRETARY REAGAN, IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO #STOP1516.

Arizona cannot have more dark money running our elections and buying our politicians!

Below is a summary of what this bill will do:

  1. Millions of anonymous dollars from outside AZ could buy new laws through ballot measures and candidates through independent expenditures and no one would know who is behind them or how much was spent.
  2. Creates new loopholes allowing entirely anonymous trust funds to give unlimited amounts of money to candidates.
  3. Anonymous corporations could provide unlimited services to candidates without any reporting.
  4. Allows candidate's to play kingmaker by making contributions to other candidates to get favored treatment. 
  5. Creates new accounting gimmicks to help cheating politician’s game the system. Candidates like Tom Horne would no longer face accountability for their alleged campaign cheating because they could "legally" cook the books. 
  6. Makes cheating the system no big deal. Removes the possibility of all felony charges and drastically eases all penalties.
  7. All of the supporters of the measure are massive campaign spenders, including Americans for Prosperity, the Chambers of Commerce, the Cattle Growers and the Home Builders.
