Wednesday, June 8, has been a key day for the effort to convince President Obama to issue an Executive Order (EO) to require federal contractors to disclose political spending.
The White House is launching its own campaign to increase civic engagement and we think it needs to include this EO. This White House push is likely to launch in early July, so now is the time for us to get them to commit to including the EO. Urge the president to stop talking and take action.

(Sorry this is late getting to you!  You can still call this week – the line was busy much of the time today anyway. You can, of course, go ahead with social media right away.)

Call the White House and tell President Obama “Get dark money out of politics. Issue the executive order today!” Here is the phone number and a sample script:

White House number:

 Hello, my name is _____ and I’m calling from _______. Huge corporations cannot continue to buy elections and policies with their money. Our democracy belongs to all of us, not the highest bidders. President Obama, it’s time to take action to sign and issue an executive order that requires companies doing business with the federal government to disclose their political spending.

AND/OR Use Social Media:

Sample Tweets or FB:

If you agree @POTUS should make sure there is #NoSecretMoney in elections, call him today at 1-888-848-4824 [Copy the image location on graphic above and paste into Twitter or FB]

Do you want #NoSecretMoney in our elections? Call @POTUS today and tell him: 1-888-848-4824 [Copy the image location on graphic above and paste into Twitter or FB]

RIGHT NOW, call @POTUS + tell him to quit standing on the sidelines as #BigMoney captures control of our elections. [Copy the image location on graphic above and paste into Twitter or FB]
Add your voice! Call 1-888-848-4824 and urge @POTUS to issue a #NoSecretMoney executive order without delay.
