At Clean Slate Now, we believe that our elected officials should put their constituents first, not their campaign contributors. Unfortunately, our political system has been undermined in a profound way by the significant role played by special interest groups in financing campaigns.
Across America, most people now feel that their elected officials are primarily interested in serving the special interest groups who help fund their campaigns, while few feel that politicians put their constituents first.(1)
Clean Slate Now hopes to change this dynamic by educating Americans about the ways special interests groups distort the political process and highlighting potential solutions to the problem of money corrupting the political process. For those interested in helping enact these solutions, we also offer opportunities to act.
