As the fight against corruption in our political system continues unabated, there is one political action committee that has become a leader in this fight for democracy. The organization is known as End Citizens United, and it is headed by the executive director and president Tiffany Muller.
The organization was originally founded in 2015 just five years after the controversial Supreme Court decision that found corporations were entitled to the same rights as individuals in regards to campaign donations. Since the original Citizens United versus the federal election commission court decision was announced billions of dollars have been spent in an effort to control our politicians. The vast majority of these funds have been funneled through special interest political action committees that are funded by large corporations and mega-donors. End Citizens United was formed in the wake of this political atrocity. It has been a beacon of hope to all those who believe that America is a paragon of democracy. Using only grassroots methodologies, the political action committee has managed to grow to over 3 million numbers, and in the last three years, it has managed to collect over $50 million in political donations. Thanks to the expert leadership from Tiffany Muller who has spearheaded the organization’s effort to end big money’s influence in politics.

With the guidance offered by her and Matt Burgess the organizations executive vice president, it has made substantial inroads in the American political system. However the question still begs, who is End Citizens United? End Citizens United is a nonprofit group that was formed with the specific goal of eliminating the influence of corporate donations and political campaigns. It is their belief that the political system is currently raked due to the decision that was made by the Supreme Court that allowed the floodgates to be opened for corporate donations and untraceable money leading to politicians who were not held accountable for their constituents.
Since its inception End Citizens United has managed to 15 politicians be elected to positions of power throughout the nation. Each of those 15 politicians has made a pledge to reject corporate special interest political action committee donations. The trend of politicians turning down these donations is growing stronger. During the first election cycle that the organization took part in only a handful of politicians made the pledge to reject corporate donations. However, in 2018 during the midterm election cycle, the majority of politicians somewhere around 70% have been noted as having made statements that reject donations from special interest groups and corporate political action committees.
