    Sign petitions against dark money

    On Sunday afternoon, I attended an extremely interesting, informative and well-attended presentation on Dark (Dirty) Money by former Arizona attorney general Terry Goddard.

    Goddard is pursuing a constitutional amendment to outlaw Dirty Money contributions in Arizona elections. He spoke eloquently about the corrosive and negative influence of undisclosed contributions to our elections from people like the Mercers and the Koch brothers.

    I applaud Goddard for his efforts to defeat Dirty Money and to restore the integrity of our electoral process. I urge everyone to support this effort by signing the petitions currently being circulated to enable this measure to be on the ballot.
