Washington, D.C. — Today the American Conservative Union (ACU) sent a letter from Chairman Al Cardenas and other conservative leaders to members of Congress and their staff asking that the Senate reject S. 791 — the Wyden/Murkowski campaign finance bill — known as the “Follow The Money Act.”
“This bill is yet another attempt to use the subterfuge of campaign finance reform to suppress free political speech and silence the voices of millions of citizen advocates,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas in the coalition letter. “It sets up a disclosure and reporting regime so onerous that to comply would defeat the purpose of any advocacy organization, which is exactly its intent. This bill deprives every American citizen of the right to support causes of their choice without fear of retribution from their bosses, neighbors or government officials. It is big brother government at its worst.”

For almost fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. ACU defines conservatism, grows conservatism, and wins for conservatism.
