Voters are deluged by political ads that have misleading fine-print disclosures about who's paying for them. More than $640 million was spent on ballot measures in California in 2012 and 2014 alone, almost all of it hidden behind deceptive names like "Stop Special Interest Money Now".
AB 700, the California DISCLOSE Act (sponsored by the California Clean Money Campaign) will stop special interests from hiding behind fake names by requiring political ads to clearly show their three largest true funders (one in the case of radio ads).
AB 700 will require the funders be disclosed on the bottom third of the TV screen in a big contrasting font on a solid black background for five seconds, so viewers can't miss them. No more fine print or misleading names.
Sign the petition for AB 700 to demand the legislature pass it now!
