After a series of debates and a long-standing argument that whether the latest United States Presidential Elections were rigged or not, it has at least come to the light that there was some truth to the rumors. There was, in fact, a Russian company that was linked to Kremlin that ran some politically influenced Ads on Facebook. The political ads published by this Russian company had the motive to influence the election campaign of the United States. It points to the fact that the election based laws of the United States is either weak or the election machinery is too weak to have not filtered any influence from the foreign entity.
To ensure that the current United State’s President Donald Trump and his team has no connection with this Russian company that ran political ads on Facebook, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been appointed. He would be determining whether Trump has played any role in this episode or if he has any connections with this event. However, even though the reputation of Robert Mueller suggests that he would dive deep into the matter to find the truth, there are serious concerns as to whether the Washington would do the same or cooperate in ensuring that happens. As per the campaign finance laws in the United States, there is no limit to how much money an individual or an organization pumps into the elections.

It is this campaign finance law that the End Citizens United, a political action committee, is fighting against. End Citizens United wants to end this law as the flow of campaign money can sway the politicians to work for the interest of their donors rather than the country’s general population. It would create a bias in the judgment of the politicians and the way the government functions. The incident of Russian company intruding the United States’ election only indicates how vulnerable such a campaign finance law can make our country.
End Citizens United works with the grass root donors and does not take large sums of money from wealthy individuals or huge organizations, but thrives on the small donations given by everyday people. The End Citizens United PAC has also helped in bringing awareness about the campaign finance laws in the US among the uninformed public, and why it needs to be overhauled for the long-term benefit of the country. End Citizens United aims to overhaul the campaign finance laws in the future with the help of people’s support and by creating more massive awareness.
