A politician trading legislative favors for campaign cash - that's a familiar headline. But it doesn't have to be.

The way America pays for elections has created a culture of corruption in Washington, D.C., that threatens our democracy. Too often, our election system forces politicians to put their campaign coffers ahead of the public interest.

But a solution is in sight: Senators Durbin and Specter are introducing the Fair Elections Now Act in Congress today - I NEED YOUR HELP!

 click here to tell your member of Congress to stop the money chase, and Common Cause will hand-deliver your message. Lawmakers should spend their time doing their jobs, not raising money.

This is your chance to tell your elected representatives that you insist on fair elections and high ethical standards for everyone who holds public office. Fair Elections Now would stop the money chase by providing public campaign funding for Congressional candidates who agree to strict spending limits and to only accept small contributions from individuals. Under Fair Elections Now, campaigns will be about people and ideas, not who can raise the most money. We elect lawmakers, not fundraisers.

click here to call for Fair Elections Now and to make Congress accountable to the rest of us, not wealthy special interests. Fair elections equal better politics - plain and simple. Please forward this message to anyone you know who cares about the way America works. With your support, we'll see a change soon.

Sincerely,

Jon Goldin-Dubois Common Cause
