First in the news about End Citizen United comes the birthday of the president and executive director, Tiffany Muller. When asked where she would spend her birthday she replied with vacationing in the Caribbean with her wife and 18 month old daughter. She was asked some other questions, among which was how she got her start in politics. She explained how she grew up in Missouri but she moved to Topeka, Kansas in her 20’s because they had a more welcoming LGBT community there. She got associated with grassroots activism there and then through hard work, became a member of the Topeka City Council, of which she was the first openly gay council member in the state.
End Citizen Unitied made headlines again when they declared to endorse Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand after the two senators who stopped accepting corporate donors. End Citizen United’s president, Tiffany Muller, was quoted saying, “Senator Booker’s decision to reject corporate PAC money demonstrates his leadership in the fight to unrig the system that’s leaving too many Americans behind, End Citizens United thanks Senator Booker and looks forward to working with him to campaign reform the broken system so everyone has a voice in our democracy.” Senator Kirsten Gillibrand also did the same just a day before and she, too, won the endorsement of End Citizens United. The first senator to start releasing a daily public schedule, she was always an advocate for more transparency in the political process according to usatoday.com. Both the senators are trying to bring down corporate sell outs in the government, which is at an all time low when it comes to trust from the people they serve. Many other democratic senators are following suit and renouncing their super PAC money. Normally, they would not be able to make it and would be fighting an uphill battle without that money, but with the help of End Citizens United and groups like it, they can raise just as much if not more money than they would have gotten from corporate support.
