America's corrupt political system is a complex problem. The American Anti-Corruption Act is a comprehensive solution.
The American Anti-Corruption Act sets a standard for city, state and federal laws that break big money's grip on politics. It will:
- Stop political bribery by making it illegal for lobbyists to lobby a politician and donate to their campaign. You can lobby, or you can donate, but you can't do both.
- End secret money so Americans know who is buying political power.
- Fix our broken elections so the people, not the political establishment, are the ones in control.
Together, we're building a nationwide movement to fix corruption.
In communities across America, Represent.Us members – conservatives, progressives and everyone in between – are working together to pass local Anti-Corruption Acts. Member-led Represent.Us chapters are leading the fight to protect our communities from the corruption that plagues Congress. In 2016, Represent.Us members passed the first statewide Anti-Corruption Act in South Dakota.
Every town, city, state, and county has a unique political makeup, so every Anti-Corruption Act is uniquely tailored to the needs of each community.
Local action, national political power.
Every municipal and state Anti-Corruption Act creates common-sense ethics, conflict-of-interest, transparency, and campaign finance laws. State Acts create the opportunity for federal candidates from that state to campaign on the anti-corruption platform – accountable to their constituents, not special interests.
Candidates who win election on this platform have a built-in incentive to champion Anti-Corruption laws in Washington, D.C. (because that's what got them elected). Every state we win gets us one crucial step closer to passing the American Anti-Corruption Act in the federal government.
