End Citizen United announced Wednesday that they endorse the Democratic nominee Doug Jones for the US Senate. Jones is a former US Attorney. He’s running against Roy Moore in the Alabama special election to be held on December 12th. Many believe that Roy Moore has a radical agenda that has no place in the US Senate.
Doug Jones: A Man of Integrity
Doug Jones is a man of integrity while Roy Moore has paid $1 million to himself and his wife from a charity that he controlled. Jones is a tough prosecutor that isn’t afraid of doing what is right. He will continue with this commitment in Congress and work to change the system, so it is better for all Americans.
Roy Moore: Supported By Hate Groups
Moore has a campaign that is supported by secretive organizations and hate groups, including the Public Advocate. He is fighting to give this radical anti-LGBT group more power to influence the democracy. He is also working to repeal the Johnson Amendment to allow churches to funnel their money into campaigns.

Bringing KKK Members to Justice
Jones is quite the opposite of Moore. When he was a US Attorney, he brought KKK members that were involved in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing to justice. He has committed himself to helping unrig the system by removing Big Money from politics.
End Citizens United

Citizens United vs. F.E.C.
The 2010 decision in Citizens United vs. F.E.C. changed politics. This case featured the idea that “corporations are people.” They wished to allow the wealthy and some special interest groups to spend money on elections in the United States. This money can’t be traced and is limitless. This enables US elections to be bought.
End Citizens United was formed to fight against political funding groups that have ulterior motives from being able to pay for elections to go in their favor. They are committed to ending Citizens United and putting pro-reform candidates in office. When End Citizens United launched, they were able to raise $4 million to support their cause from various small donors.
The website for End Citizens United shows what they do and provides pages for candidates that are fighting for finance reform. If you want to help change the current state of the nation, check out their website and see what you can do.
