Common Sense Clean Government: A Commitment to Transparency and Accountability

Ohio has a rich history marred by instances of political corruption, from Cincinnati's Boss Cox to Robert Taft Jr.'s Coin-gate scandal. More recently, we witnessed Ex-Speaker Rosenberg's Payday Lender Scandal, and Larry Householder's actions have surpassed them all.

In 2010, the landmark Supreme Court decision Citizens United disrupted the hopeful reforms of the McCain-Feingold Act, injecting a lethal dose of dark money into the American political process. This decision famously declared that corporations are people and money is speech. As a result, our elections have become vulnerable not only to corporate interests that often disregard the well-being of the general public, but also to foreign influences and the disturbing practice of money laundering within our elections.

Chuck Horn's Common Sense Approach

huck Horn believes that any meaningful reform must prioritize disclosure and transparency:

1) Make Lobbyists Report Funding Sources: Chuck advocates for making lobbyists report who is paying them and how much they are receiving. This ensures that the public knows which interests are attempting to influence their elected officials.

2) Require Disclosure from Outside Spending Groups: Chuck supports the requirement for 501(c) nonprofits and all other outside groups spending $10,000 or more on election-related activities to disclose within 24 hours any donor who has given more than $10,000 to the organization. This ensures that dark money sources are brought into the light.

Chuck firmly believes that we cannot equate money with speech. He has no respect for those who hide their true intentions through anonymity, secrecy, and often dishonesty using phony shell corporations, all while attempting to claim protection under the First Amendment.

Corporations are not people. Money is not speech. Greed is not good.
