The End Citizens United PAC has often been seen as a group dedicated to solely backing a single campaign to remove the Citizens United decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010. However, in recent times the group has become a go-to organization when campaign finance rules and regulations are ignored by those who have been tasked with the job of protecting the future of the U.S. population. End Citizens United operates as a traditional PAC, meaning donors can only provide a maximum financial contribution of $5,000 at any time.
In October 2017, End Citizens UNited President, Tiffany Muller responded to reports a Montana Judge had been subverting campaign finance rules as he prepared to declare his candidacy in a run for the Senate. Montana-based Judge Russ Fagg has been rumored to be on the verge of declaring his candidacy for the Senate for a number of months and recently established what was described as an exploratory committee to assess the available options for starting a campaign. The establishment of the Russ Fagg Senate Exploratory Committee should not have been a controversial moment in the career of the Montana Judge, but a recently filed Federal Election Committee complaint claims the committee is a shadow campaign group.
The complaint has been filed by the American Democracy Legal Fund and backed by the End Citizens United PAC who feel the Judge has been skirting campaign finance rules over the course of the last few months. Tiffany Muller has explained the campaign of Judge Fagg has been accepting donations for months and working beyond the legal phase known as “testing the waters” of an election bid; it has also been reported the Montant Code of Judicial Conduct does not allow a judge to raise money for political groups for fear of affecting their independence.
End Citizens United was born in March 2015 by a group of people dismayed at the rising level of influence seen in the work of a political donor class of billionaires who many feels have too much power in modern politics. Among the work being completed by End Citizens United is the backing in elections of Democrat candidates backing the need to make changes to the current campaign finance laws. Although creating a change in the election campaign finance laws may be difficult, End Citizens United believe this is a fight and controversy needing to be highlighted in the buildup to the 2018 midterm elections.
