Election law in Florida allows candidates and elected officials to open and operate a “political committee”. These political committees can accept unlimited contributions and spend unlimited amounts of money. This has made the traditional candidate campaign account with limits on contributions meaningless. Political Committees transfer money to another one, setting up a shell game that makes it tough to track the original donor. Special interests can hide the millions of dollars they use to control legislation that benefits their own self-interest at our expense.
SB 122 will prohibit the transfer of money between political committees or electioneering communication organization.
SB 122 will make the election process more transparent and allow voters to make informed decisions about candidates.
We want to know if a candidate is going to represent the people that elected them or are they going to be controlled by the big money special interests?
