The many ways that the president, his family and his aides are lining their own pockets.

They don’t even try very hard to hide it.

President Trump, his family and more than a few of his appointees are using his presidency to enrich themselves. They are spending taxpayer dollars for their own benefit. They are accepting sweetheart deals from foreigners. And they are harnessing the power of the federal government on behalf of their businesses.

There’s a word for this: corruption.                                           (click to keep reading)

Reclaiming our Democracy

Senator Tom Udall and Representative David Price have introduced “We the People” Democracy Reform Act of 2017. The Act is a comprehensive reform of campaign funds, redistricting and voting registration, requires presidential candidates to share their assets, campaign funds and tax returns, and makes the Executive Branch more accountable and transparent. Lobbyists and special interest corporations that influence our government will be restricted. It also addresses the Supreme Court decision of Citizens United where unlimited campaign funds are largely kept secret.

Contact your Senators and Congressmen to support this important legislation.

The Election of 2016 revealed a real need for presidential candidates to provide the public with their tax returns in order to demonstrate transparency and allow the public an opportunity to determine possible conflicts of interest of presidential candidates. The State of Maryland should require all presidential candidates to provide their tax returns in order to be considered for the primary ballot. Please contact by phone, mail or email your General Assembly Representatives asking them to consider a Presidential Candidate Tax Transparency Act for the 2018 legislative agenda.
