Why End Citizens United Opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Nomination

There are just a few weeks to go until America votes in the 2018 midterm elections. The progressive political action committee End Citizens United (ECU) has endorsed many candidates for political office this year who support campaign finance reform.

This organization was founded in 2015 and is headquartered in the nation’s capital. End Citizens United was formed in response to End Citizens United vs. FEC court case that wound up being heard by the Supreme Court. This court disastrously sided with End Citizens United. As a direct result of that ruling, corporations can not inject endless amounts of dark money into political campaigns without any restrictions. Follow the group on LinkedIn.

End Citizens United has endorsed dozens of candidates for office this election cycle. As they point out there is a huge amount at stake in this election. Some of the candidates they have endorsed are seeking to replace Republicans who currently serve in the House or the Senate.

This PAC vigorously opposed Judge Brett Kavanaugh being appointed to the Supreme Court. He was a disastrous pick for many reasons who threatens the rights of millions of people in the United States. He is a right-wing extremist who wants to overturn Roe vs. Wade and supports the Supreme Court decision that allowed corporations to take over American politics.

Their opinion at this organization is that he will help further rig the system so that corporate special interests are able to get even more of their wishes fulfilled. Throughout his history as a Federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh has shown that he almost always supports the interests corporations and wealthy people over those of average Americans. If there is a court case in the future where campaign finance reform is involved he will no doubt be the deciding vote blocking it.

The team behind ECU has opposed Supreme Court nominations in the past like they have Brett Kavanaugh. They were also against Judge Merrick Garland in 2006. Additionally, they opposed Donald Trump’s last Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch. He, too, supports corporations over people.
