Will Wall Street decide the winners and losers of the 2010 elections?

Recently the Supreme Court struck down the long-standing ban on corporate and union spending in federal elections. Most observers expect corporations, including the big banks, to pour millions into political campaigns attacking or supporting candidates in November.

These Wall Street titans received billions in bailout money from American taxpayers, only to turn around and spendit on "performance bonuses" for their executives and lobbying efforts to convince Congress to weaken financial regulations.

Let's draw the line at influencing our elections, and stop their shameless manipulation of our government.

Join us in calling on the banks to pledge to Stay Out of Our Elections!

We need to save the 2010 elections from becoming a special-interest driven madhouse. Let's send a message that congressional elections are for us -- the voters -- to decide, and that the threat of unlimited spending by the richest banks in America should not influence how members of Congress vote on financial reform or the outcome of our elections.

Banks and other companies already have enough influence in Washington, thanks to their armies of high-priced lobbyists. Let's tell them to Stay Out of Our Elections!

Ask theWall Street CEOs to publicly pledge not to spend their profits attacking or supporting political candidates in the 2010 elections.

Please sign today, andCommon Cause will hand-deliver your message to the banks.

Thanks for all you do,

Bob Edgar
and the rest of the team at Common Cause
