CBS Sunday Morning Features Anti-Corruption Movement
Represent.Us is a nationwide campaign of conservatives, progressives and everyone in between working together to pass anti-corruption laws in cities and states across the country. These laws protect our local communities from corruption, force politicians to represent people instead of special interests, and build momentum for national reform. Learn more about our plan here.
CBS Sunday Morning said it perfectlyHonest Gil's satirical run for president is getting everyone talking about corruption. But what's even more important about our movement is that we bring conservatives and progressives together, and we win. Represent.Us members and our allies have already tallied 10 victories, and we're just getting started.

America’s Corruption CrisisThe 2016 race will be the most expensive election in U.S. history — projected at more than $10 billion! Politicians from both political parties are completely dependent on the handful of elites who bankroll their political careers. Big donors are buying politicians, and their lobbyists are writing our laws. Corruption is legal in America.
Things are so bad, a 20-year study by top political scientists found that "the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy." One thing that does have an impact? Money. Economic elites, business interests, and people who can afford lobbyists get what they want, and the rest of us pay the price.
