The GOP control of the House came despite more votes for Democrats. Republicans used dark money to control redistricting in many states, aided by other supposedly nonpartisan groups that leaned heavily to Republicans.

Target: United States Congress

Goal: Cap   spending in order to promote fairness

Capping expenditures for political campaigning has been a hotly contested issue for some time. While proposals for caps have been struck down in the past, a 2012 study by the Huffington Post suggests that 80 percent of voters are in support of limiting the amount of money given to groups that influence the outcome of the election. Before anything can be done, however, changes must be made to the constitution that, as of 2010, removed limits on independent campaign spending due its subsequent infringement of “political speech.”

As it turns out, the Republican Presidential nominee may not be eligible to actually run for President.

While he was overseas, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney held numerous fundraisers which were closed to all journalists (except one who did not have access to the donor list). In our campaign laws, it is blatantly illegal for a political candidate to accept money from non-United States citizens.

According to a Veterans Today report, “Mitt Romney has raised millions in foreign cash at fundraising event across Israel and London, those that we know of so far. One table alone gave him a million in cash. None was from American citizens. Fewer than 10% of Romney’s contributors in Israel are estimated to be “dual citizens.” Others may have just flown the money in.” If this is true, we deserve a candidate who understands campaign laws and does not challenge the integrity necessary for an elected official position.

These charges are very serious. Foreign citizens should not be funding our candidates, since our candidates should only have the best interest of the American people – not their foreign allies.

Six former Vatican ambassadors have banded together to lead a new outreach for Mitt Romney presidential campaign to encourage Catholic voters to support him over pro-abortion President Barack Obama in November. The issue of abortion is one of the reasons for their decision to endorse Romney, as they explain in a new letter announcing the effort.

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) has directed his administration to purge the state’s voting rolls of thousands of registered voters prior to the November election. But his list, which purports to include only “non-citizens,” targets mostly Democrats and Hispanics and, as ThinkProgress has documented, may disenfranchise hundreds of citizens who are eligible to vote.

A citizen advocacy group is asking the Federal Court of Canada to overturn election results in seven ridings where telephone dirty tricks may have kept voters away from the polls.

The Council of Canadians says pre-recorded robocalls and live calls influenced the outcome of votes in closely fought races in British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Yukon and Ontario.

Elections Canada has just traced illegal phone calls made during the 2011 federal election to a company that worked for the Conservative Party across the country.

The “robocalls” appeared to be designed to stop non-Conservative voters from casting ballots in key ridings by falsely telling voters that the location of their polling stations had changed, causing them to go to the wrong location on election day.1

This news casts doubt on the legitimacy of their majority Government. The Conservatives only narrowly won their majority by 6,201 votes in 14 ridings.2

We need answers and real consequences that lay the foundation for new laws to protect the integrity of Canadian elections.
