Don't let the Republicans filibuster the DISCLOSE Act.

Dear Friend,

It's still crunch time for those of us who want to stop the secret election spending that's flooding into our political system.

Yesterday, the Senate had its first vote on the DISCLOSE Act, with progressive champion Senator Sheldon Whitehouse leading the charge to pass it.

But Republicans used the filibuster to prevent the bill from passing.

We can't take this lying down.

Sen. Whitehouse and his colleagues haven't given up, and neither should we.

Despite the outcome of this first vote, the Democrats stayed on the Senate floor past midnight pressing their case to the American people.

The Republicans look awful trying to defend secret election spending by billionaires and wealthy corporations.

You are a constituent of Sen. Grassley. Pick up the phone and make sure it's clear to him that if he won't support the DISCLOSE Act, you'll hold him accountable.

To be clear, what we really need is to get all corporate money out of politics, to roll back Citizens United, end corporate personhood and institute public financing of elections. And we are working hard toward those long term goals.

But in the interim, we must fight on all fronts, especially bringing more transparency to corporate campaign donations.

Passing the DISCLOSE Act would be the first step to restoring the voice of everyday citizens in our elections, and restoring a small measure of sanity to a system of campaign finance that has become completely insane.

While it won't end unlimited corporate election spending, the DISCLOSE Act at least brings this spending out of the shadows — where we can expose it, and fight back.
