What is the Anti-Corruption Act?

About the American Anti-Corruption Act

The American Anti-Corruption Act sets a standard for city, state and Federal Anti-Corruption laws that put power back in the hands of the people.

Each Anti-Corruption Act stops political bribery, ends secret money and fixes our broken elections. The Act's specific provisions vary by locale based on Constitutional limitations and the necessity of specific anti-corruption measures.

Key provisions of the American Anti-Corruption Act:

  • Make it illegal for politicians to take money from lobbyists
  • Ban lobbyist bundling
  • Close the revolving door
  • Prevent politicians from fundraising during working hours
  • Immediately disclose political money online
  • Stop donors from hiding behind secret-money groups
  • End gerrymandering
  • Let all voters participate in open primaries
  • Let voters rank their top candidates, avoid “spoilers”
  • Automatic voter registration
  • Vote at home or at the polls
  • Change how elections are funded
  • Crack down on super PACs
  • Eliminate lobbyist loopholes
  • Strengthen anti-corruption enforcement
