Chrissy Houlahan Endorsed By End Citizens United

Chrissy HoulihanEnd Citizens United (ECU) endorsed Chrissy Houlahan for Congress for her commitment to campaign finance reform and getting Big Money out of politics.

“Chrissy Houlahan isn’t afraid to take a stand against Big Money and we’re proud to endorse her,” said President of ECU Tiffany Muller in a letter of endorsement. “Chrissy understands the corrupting influence of money in politics and has made reform a key part of her candidacy. She knows we can’t fix the broken system without first standing up to the special interests trying to buy our elections. We look forward to working together to unrig the system for everyday Americans in Pennsylvania and around the country.”

“I’m deeply concerned by the increasing influence of secret money in our elections. We need to reform our campaign finance system to increase transparency and regain the public’s trust in our elected officials,” said Houlahan in a press release. “If elected, one of my first actions in Congress will be to fix this broken campaign finance system and work to undo the damage caused by Citizens United.”

Republican candidate, Rep. Ryan Costello, defends the Citizens United decision made by the Supreme Court, and voted to block a constitutional amendment overturning the decision in 2015.

According to the press release, ECU, with its almost 4,000 members in Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional district, will help guarantee that Houlahan has the resources to win by working with her campaign and activating ECU’s 360,000 national donors. By exposing their opponents’ ties to special interests, ECU assisted the election of New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan and Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto in 2016. ECU has raised almost $2 million for its endorsed candidates, and is dedicated to electing members of Congress want to eliminate Citizens United and pass campaign finance reform.

  1. Chrissy Houlahan is a LEFT-WINGER, who hasn’t a clue as to the First Amendment. It’s a JOKE (and a fund-raising scam) to think that CITIZENS UNITED will be undone. It’s too arduous a task to amend the U.S. Constitution (which is very good).

    She needs to purchase a copy of the U.S. Constitution, if Hillary gives her permission to do so?

  2. The major donor to End Citizens United is the Foundation for National Progress. This latter organization, which also parents Mother Jones, received grants from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and other leftist donors.

  3. Seriously Democrats, you can’t rail against getting the money out of politics while you’re accepting huge contributions from the NEA, SEIU, NARAL, etc. Them paying you to push their agenda is just as crooked as Republicans who do the same for corporate interests or the Pro-Life lobby.

    1. Agreed. She has lined up and taken money from the Unions already and of course the big abortion loving EMILYs LIST which funds failed political campaigns. Don’t know how she can even mutter these words. Huge hypocrite.

    2. End Citizens United is a PAC with no agenda other than to fund certain Democratic Party candidates. Those running the PAC seem to make the determinations by their own fiat or perhaps on the direction of donors. If the latter, that would be interesting as a major one is the George Soros-funded Foundation for National Progress, which also, BTW, publishes Mother Jones.

  4. Hilarious that she can lie, and in the same sentence say that she hopes to bring back trust to elected office. In this case, we don’t need to drain the swamp, we need to make sure the swamp never gets to DC in the first place.

  5. LOLOL this is the most hypocritical thing I’ve everrrrr heard of. The first call she made was to EMILYS LIST?! A super liberal group that will pump tonss of abortion cash into her race. How does she sleep at night? All she does is lie and attack when she hasn’t released a single policy position. DISQUALIFYING.

  6. I do not agree with the comment that there is “Secret Money” anywhere. Candidates file FEC forms where it shows exactly what PACs give money to candidates.

  7. She IS BIG MONEY. It is hilarious to me to see this woman act like some liberal crusader when all you used to hear about her family in this area was about how wealthy they were. She needs to step out of her mansion and into reality. We do not believe the character you claim to be.
