Public Citizen staff delivers 2+ million petition signatures in support of constitutional amendment to regulate dark money. Daily Kos has a box full.

Daily Kos figures prominently in delivery of 2+ million signatures in support of the constitutional amendment to limit the impact of outside money in politics.

The two Senate leaders, Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell made a rare joint appearance Tuesday, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on a proposed constitutional amendment to reimpose spending limits by outside groups in political campaigns. They were, of course, on opposite sides of the debate over whether or not it’s okay for the Koch brothers to buy themselves a government.

Reid argued [pdf] that “the flood of dark money into our nation’s political system poses the greatest threat to our democracy that I have witnessed during my time in public service.” The system the Supreme Court has left the nation with is one in which “one side’s billionaires are pitted against the other side’s billionaires.”

  1. I’m so glad there are politicians that are behind an amendment. That increases our chances of an amendment actually happening.
