A SuperPAC to end all SuperPACs??
At Represent.Us, we're proud to be working with other leaders, supporting their work while they support ours, in a unified movement to fix our broken political system.
Of all the bold ideas this movement has had, this is one of the most audacious — and that’s exactly why it just might work:
On May 1, Harvard professor and anti-corruption leader Lawrence Lessig introduced a “Super PAC to end all Super PACs” called MayDay PAC. They're going after politicians who won't stand against corruption. The “kickstarter-style" campaign is already halfway to its goal. It can succeed if we all support it, and we have just one day left to push them over the top.
Lawrence Lessig asked us to pass this on to you:
Here's the goal of the Mayday PAC: $5 million by July 4th. This is a big challenge, but please, pledge to help. We won’t collect a dime from those who pledge unless we raise enough money to have real impact in the 2014 elections.
If we can raise $5 million by July 4, then we will have the money we need in this election cycle, and we will have the chance we all nee to win a Congress committed to fundamental reform by the next election cycle.
If we don't hit the goal, you get your money back. If we do, you get your democracy back.
It is time for all of us to win this fight. With the kind of leadership Represent.Us is showing here, we just might. Thank you for what you have done, and continue to do, for our cause.
