Stop secret attack ads!


We deserve to know who is trying to influence our votes. But decisions like Citizens United have opened the door for wealthy special interests to flood the airwaves with negative ads, without even disclosing who they are.

The FCC could shine some light on who's behind these ads by updating its disclosure rules to require that these ads list the donors who paid for them on air.

Urge the FCC to stop secretly-funded attack ads today!
