End Citizens United, a leading PAC in the United States that works to control unlimited money into political campaigns, came up and supported the upcoming Honest Ads Act. The President of ECU, Tiffany Muller, confirmed that the bill is an attempt to prevent foreign interference in the election process of the country. It is a situation that makes the people of America voiceless, and they should not be influenced by the tactics of Russia or some other countries to overrule the democratic symbols of the country, she added. Muller also thanked Senators Mark Warner, John McCain, and Amy Klobuchar for coming up with such a bill to prevent the infiltration attempts of foreign governments, especially at a time others are sitting idle.
The PAC is also planning to raise campaigns against the members of the house who are opposing the great effort. Additionally, ECU would launch a petition campaign at the grassroots level and get the support of minimum three million members for the bill. The Advocacy Action Network of ECU has already collected over 43,000 signatures demanding an independent investigation into the Russian rigging in the 2016 election. Also, the PAC sent a letter to all the Senators, experts, and 27 reform organizations to back the Honest Ads Act. The letter states that the protection of the democracy and integrity of the elections are at risk in successfully defending the infiltrations executed by Russia and other countries.

End Citizens United was established in the year 2015 to prevent the disturbing outcomes of the shocking verdict for the Citizens United PAC by the Supreme Court in 2010. Since the verdict gave uncontrolled and unlimited money flow into the politics and campaign process, the PAC wants to reverse its effects by successfully passing legislation in both the houses. For that reason, ECU campaigns for reform in election spending since it founded. The PAC plans to send as many pro-campaign reformers to both the houses for getting the bill passed per its objective. It also campaigns on the social media intensely to take its message to the people of the country for making them aware of the threats and importance of the legislation.
