End Citizens United Battles The Erosion Of Campaign Finance Rules At All Levels

End Citizens United is known as the PAC fighting to bring an end to one of the most divisive Supreme Court decisions in the history of the U.S. Campaign finance rules are always under threat and are all being protected by End Citizens United which has far more reach beyond the realm of simply fighting to end the Citizens United decision which the groups itself admits will be difficult to do in the current political climate; there are many issues facing those with an interest in the campaign financing laws of the U.S. and the fight to halt any firther erosion of the finance rules of the U.S. is something the group is determined to do.

The latest threat End Citizens United has identified to the freedom and democratic election process is the signing of an Executive Order designed to erode the powers passed into law under the title of the Johnson Amendment. Introduced to the Senate by then-Senator and future President, Lyndon Johnson in 1954, the Johnson Amendment was designed to ensure the separation of Church and State by threatening the tax-exempt status of any charitable group providing campaign financing for candidates or political parties. Becoming known as the Johnson Amendment, this piece of legislation was not controversial when introduced and has largely been left unopposed on the law books; however, the status of the Johnson Amendment was placed under threat in 2016 when President Donald Trump announced his determination to repeal the Johnson Amendment when he entered The White House.

The process of removing the Johnson Amendment from the law books may have been sidestepped by President Trump when he signed an Executive Order stating the IRS should not actively enforce the rule of law in this case. The Johnson Amendment is seen as an important piece of legislation for those who have an interest in U.S. politics because the separation of Church and State halts a large amount of unknown money flooding into the political system with tax refunds offered on much of the money donated. End Citizens United explains the problem of any removal of the power of the Johnson Amendment could result in large tax exemptions being claimed on campaign funding from unknown individuals.

The work of End Citizens United is not limited to simply protecting the erosion of campaign financing rules but has also led to the group endorsing a number of Democrat’s for office across its short lifespan. High-profile Democrat’s such as Elizabeth Warren has been endorsed for their stance on overturning the Citizens United decision and gave its endorsement to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential Election campaign.
