My campaign does not accept corporate PAC (Political Action Committee) money. My campaign will not accept any National Democratic Leadership money because my vote doesn’t belong to any party; it belongs to the people of the first congressional district.
In Congress, I’ll fight for a lifetime ban on lobbying by former members of Congress to make sure the voice of the people isn’t drowned out by the inside deals between partisan leadership and the special interests. I will work to:
- Ban lobbyist gifts
- Increase disclosure
- Establish a new Independent Ethics Commission to investigate and audit influence by special interests
