Investigate Trump's Hush Money to Stormy Daniels

We deserve transparency and accountability when it comes to money spent to influence our elections. The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Election Commission (FEC) must investigate the payment Trump’s lawyer made to Stormy Daniels, and determine whether he, the president, or his campaign broke federal election laws.

Senator Rubio: Return the NRA's bribe money

I want Senator Marco Rubio to give back the $3,303,355 he received from the NRA! This is clearly bribery, and shows that his concern is not at all for gun safety, but rather his bottom line! He is certainly not a man of integrity!

Tell DC Mayor Bowser and DC Council: Stop Trump's War Parade

Trump plans a massive demonstration of military power in Washington, D.C. A war parade would be a waste of our taxpayer dollars, would not do anything to keep our country safe, and would not honor the men and women in uniform. Its entire purpose is to let Trump play dictator for a day, further eroding democracy, and pushing our country even closer to authoritarianism. Trump's war parade must not be treated as normal. Prevent Trump from holding a dangerous war parade in Washington, D.C.

Pledge to vote against politicians who will not support gun control.

We can only counter the power of the NRA through our votes. I propose a state-by-state drive to gather signatures of registered voters who pledge to vote against any politician of any party in their state who will not openly and directly support the kind of common-sense gun control that is wanted by a large majority of Americans.

Boycott the National Rifle Association

Polls repeatedly show most NRA members support gun regulation reform to reduce gun violence, but the NRA has consistently opposed any attempt to reduce gun violence through regulation. Sign this petition if you believe NRA members should cancel their membership and stop funding NRA bully tactics and misinformation campaigns.

Cory Gardner-stop accepting NRA funds

According to the New York Times, you have accepted $3,879, 064 in funds from the NRA. Shame on you for the hypocrisy of accepting these funds while at the same time expressing condolences to families who have tragically suffered at the hands of mass gun violence. As the senator of a state that has experienced the Columbine and Aurora shootings you should know better. Support legitimate background checks nation wide (and use our State as an example), as well as a ban on assault weapons. These are weapons of war and not meant for civilian society.

Boy Scouts of America: Cut Ties with the NRA

The Boy Scouts of America should cut ties with the National Rifle Association until the NRA returns to its original stated mission of “Firearms Safety Education, Marksmanship Training, Shooting for Recreation" instead of its current mission to arm all citizens of the United States of America by inciting fear.

Devin Nunes must be removed from Russia probe

Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ attacks against the integrity of the Mueller investigation are a shameful partisan stunt. He must be removed from participating in the Russia investigation so we can get the answers we deserve.

Remove Scott Pruitt as Director of the EPA

On February 17, 2017 the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Scott Pruitt as the new head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The vote, mostly along party lines (50 Republican Senators along with 2 Democrats - How Senators Voted on Scott Pruitt for E.P.A. Administrator http://nyti.ms/2nSkcWG) handed over control of our environment to the Trump administration and the fossil fuel industry. As Director of the EPA, Mr. Pruitt is trusted to lead the agency in the direction, intent and spirit under which it was formed back in 1970 by then President Richard Nixon (R). The agency’s mission is to protect...

Rep. Chris Collins: Give Back $7695 in NRA Contributions

The National Rifle Association has contributed large amounts of money to many members of Congress, including House Representative Chris Collins. Rep. Collins has received $7695 in support from the NRA and members of its staff. I call on Rep. Collins to give this money back.

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune. The billionaire Kochs and their tea party politics presented a clear threat to independent journalism, so several organizations, including Forecast the Facts, Courage Campaign, and Working Families started MoveOn Petitions asking Tribune Company CEO Peter Liguori not to sell to the Koch brothers.
