Tom Fiegen on Government Reform

 

 


Whoever underwrites your campaign, owns you

Q: Why do you swear off PAC money?

A: Because whoever underwrites your campaign, owns you. And as the Bible says, you cannot serve two masters. You cannot take money from corporate PACs and then serve working people. If me or anyone else running for public office wants to stand with working people, they cannot owe anything to the corporate PACs. Our democracy is under fierce attack. Billionaire families are now able to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to buy the candidates of their choice.
