Political Reform

Our political system has become increasingly corrupt, failing the people of California and jeopardizing our future. As our next State Senator, Ben Allen will fight to clean up and reform California’s political system. Ben will:

  • Fight to restore ethics and integrity to California’s government.
  • Shine a spotlight on political fundraising by requiring 24-hour disclosure of all political contributions to make it easier for citizens to find out which donors are funding which campaigns.
  • Fight against corruption by working for tough, new laws that ban campaign contributions during legislative session. (Senator Leland Yee was accepting donations from special interest groups just days before he voted on their bills!
  • Push for partial public financing of political campaigns to encourage small personal donations and to empower ordinary citizens to have a real voice in our political system.
