End Citizens United has selected Democratic nominee Doug Jones to run in the Alabama special election on December 12, 2017. He will be running against Republican Ray Moore a former Supreme Court Judge of Alabama.
ECU has called out Ray Moore for having a “bigoted agenda” and a person who supports “a rigged system in Washington”. ECU accuses Moore of favoring special interests groups and neglects the concerns of the working class people.
Doug Jones has vowed to work with ECU in support of working-class families by putting an end to corruption due to big money donors. While serving as the US Attorney, Jones brought members of the KKK, who were involved in the 16sth Street Baptist Church bombing, to justice and thus is committed to safety and security for all.
Ray Moore, on the other hand, is supported by hate groups, such as Public Advocate, a radical anti-LGBT group. He is also leading the charge in the repeal of the Johnson Amendment which allows political groups to use churches as a front in order to funnel money into campaigns. Not to mention, Moore paid both he and his wife an excess of $1 million from a charity fund in his control, according to Tiffany Muller, president of ECU.

ECU’s support of candidates such as Doug Jones is necessary to the goal of reversing the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision which gives power to super PACs who are advocates for dark money influencing politics. End Citizens United also plans to aid in the legislation of campaign finance reforms to put the power back into everyday citizen’s hands.
Over the past two years since the ECU’s inception, membership has increased to more than 3 million. ECU believes in grassroots funding by everyday people who are often under-represented due to special interests and huge secretive donations by political systems.
As stated so eloquently in the Preamble to the Constitution, “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity…” The ECU is committed to supporting the people and upholding the very values that our country was built upon.
