BOSTON – Former Assistant Attorney General Quentin Palfrey called on the Massachusetts legislature to take up campaign finance reform to tackle the corrosive influence of special interest money in politics.
“This election is a textbook case of what is wrong with our campaign finance system,” Palfrey said. “With rich candidates self-financing multimillion dollar advertising campaigns and corporate special interest donors polluting our campaigns through superPACs, big donors have too much power on Beacon Hill and special interest money threatens to drown out grassroots voices in our elections.”
Palfrey called for four immediate reforms:
“Since Citizens United, corporate special interest money has polluted our elections and undermined faith in our democracy,” Palfrey said. “This year’s elections make it clear that reforms are badly needed to ensure that our elections are free and fair. Voters deserve to base their decisions on which candidates have the best experience and policies for the job, not based on which multi-millionaires and corporate superPACs spend the most on advertising.”
