Dear Mr. President:

Our organizations are writing to you once again to express our grave concerns about the extraordinary failure of the Federal Election Commission to properly enforce and interpret the nation's campaign finance laws, and about your inaction to address this very damaging situation.

Statement by Lloyd Leonard, Director of Advocacy for the League of Women Voters of the United States.

The League of Women Voters has been working for fair and open elections for many decades. We have supported campaign finance reforms at the national level and in the states in order to protect our democracy from corruption and to ensure that the voices of regular voters can be heard.

The League sent a letter to Senators urging them to oppose the termination of the Election Assistance Commission, the only federal agency that devotes its full resources to improving American elections.
