spendingThe latest commentary from Matt Rothschild at the Democracy Campaign.


MADISON - This morning, in the Wisconsin Senate Parlor, Sen. Chris Larson unveiled nine crucial campaign finance reform bills.

Here’s a list of the bills, and I urge you to contact your legislators and ask them to co-sponsor and support them:

2019-20 Campaign Integrity Package

At the press conference, I praised Sen. Larson’s efforts, and I noted that his bills are desperately needed because Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Fitzgerald rewrote our campaign finance law in 2015 and turned it into “an open invitation to corruption, which the wealthy and the corporations promptly and gladly accepted.”

WisconsinEye recorded the event live on Facebook. My statement begins at the 8 minute mark. Or read my statement here:

Vos and Fitzgerald Made Corruption Easier

A Valentine

I’d like to thank the activists who showed up to support the event, especially the brilliant organizers with Wisconsin United to Amend.

It was a Valentine’s Day to remember.

Best,

Matt Rothschild
Executive Director
