Lasry Takes the End Citizens United Pledge

No Corporate PAC Money

Milwaukee – Alex Lasry, candidate for the United States Senate, endorsed a sweeping set of reforms to fight corruption and get special interest money out of politics.

“I am proud to take the End Citizens United Pledge as one of the first acts of my campaign,” said Alex Lasry. “By rejecting corporate PAC money, my campaign is showing just how serious we are about reforming and unrigging the system.”

Lasry also pledged his support for HR 1/SR 1, otherwise known as The For the People Act. The legislation has three key goals: protecting the right to vote, ending the dominance of big money in politics, and restoring ethics and accountability in government.

“HR1/SR 1 sets out a new way of thinking in Washington with its bold reforms that dramatically overhaul our elections system and restore the public’s faith in our democracy,” said Lasry. “Passing this common-sense legislation as soon as possible will also send a message to working families who know the system is too often rigged against them that things can change for the better.”

The End Citizens United Pledge calls for the reversal of the U.S. Supreme Court 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The decision deregulated limits on independent expenditure groups and led to the explosion in outside spending on political campaigns.

The Democratic Primary Election for the United States Senate will be held Tuesday, August 9th, 2022. For more information about Alex Lasry and his campaign, visit www.alexlasry.com.
