It is a relatively unglamorous issue that doesn't arouse sustained passion.
Several groups dance around the issue:
In early 2006 the steady stream of national money in politics scandals presented an opportunity for reformers that called for an extraordinary effort and cooperation. The Brennan Center for Justice, Common Cause, Democracy Matters, Public Campaign, Public Citizen, and U.S. PIRG forged a working coalition and launched a campaign, Seize the Moment (STM), with a mission to focus public attention on federal public financing as the best politically viable, constitutionally acceptable, and practical response to the scandals.
When Sens. Durbin and Specter introduced the Fair Elections Now Act in March, they had support from a long list of organizations that represent millions of Americans. Below is the full list of organizations that have endorsed the legislation.
