Special interest groups have become a major problem for politicians and voters in the U.S. who often see their choices in each election cycle affected by the arrival of big money in the political environment.
End Citizens United has become the major PAC dedicated to the reversal of the 2010 Supreme Court decision which came about following a desire to broadcast the film, “Hillary: The Movie.” A two-year court battle ensued which eventually reached the Supreme Court in 2010 when the mystery of who was paying for the production and broadcast of the movie and the issue of whether a corporate group could be viewed as having human rights came down in favor of the Republican-backing group.
In 2015, End Citizens United made the decision to enter politics as a traditional PAC limiting donations to just $5,000 per election cycle per member; this limitation means even those who have donated to the PAC such as George Soros do not have the power to influence its future direction. Removing dark money from politics is the aim of End Citizens United as the PAC has recently set out to limit the impact of those who choose to subvert the campaign financing rules which remain in place across the U.S.

Former Florida Governor Rick Scott has become one of the main targets for ECU as the group has spotted some strange, possibly illegal activity involving Scott’s New Republican Super PAC. The New Republican group was initially set up to provide support for the policies of President Donald Trump among young people but recently saw its aim moved to the Senate election campaign of Governor Scott. End Citizens United raised the alarm about the use of campaign funds in this way by Scott and recently stated the action broke the “testing the waters” rules for potential Senate candidates.
End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller recently revealed a list of the top GOP politicians accepting funds from special interest groups including some famous names such as Ted Cruz. The irony for Cruz has been the fact the former Presidential candidate was originally elected using a grassroots campaign among tea party members rejecting the possibilities offered by special interest group funding.
