The latest corruption extravaganza

Posted by Charles II on June 4, 2012

Public Citizen has correctly labeled Susan Collins’ bill S. 1100 an invitation to contractor corruption. The bill says right up front that its purpose is:

To amend title 41, United States Code, to prohibit inserting politics into the Federal acquisition process by prohibiting the submission of political contribution information as a condition of receiving a Federal contract.

Now, we know about the sewer of secret campaign finance that Citizens United opened up. But because federal contractors have to disclose how they are influencing the political process, that ruling doesn’t cover them.

They’re already free to give campaign finance bribes to people who will be voting whether or not to give them money. What they want is freedom from disclosure of that corrupt nexus.

You can take action here.
