The controversy behind Citizens United has reached a different level because of the existence of the passionate force behind the End Citizens United movement. The small conservative nonprofit Citizens United got into a lot of controversies when it aired a movie about Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primaries last presidential elections.
The man behind the Citizens United action, lawyer James Bopp, wanted to push for the airing of the Hillary Clinton movie that wanted to show how Hillary is a Lady Macbeth hidden in a scheming body of a Machiavelli, a film that seeks to diminish the name of Hillary.
Rise of End Citizens United
People of various groups launched the End Citizens United last March 1, 2015, which is a political action committee made sure to fight the Citizens United movement. It is a grassroots movement dedicated to making sure that they can address the disastrous damages of Citizens United and to ensure that there will be reforms in the country’s campaign system.
The group runs with the help of candidates, voters, elected officials and other parties concerned in fighting the billionaires who finance and jeopardize the transparent nature of the elections. The campaign is pushing for a broad reform for lawmakers to give responsibility to anyone running for any form of elections. The fight for End Citizens United comes from its desire to ban companies from donating to presidential candidates.

End of Citizens United Movement Getting Attacked
In a recent report from USA TODAY, the End of Citizens United is under a lot of tension because of how it was able to generate a lot of donations, too, from corporations. The End Citizens United is operating as a traditional PAC, and the authorities prohibit them from accepting donations. The funds it generated caused a lot of criticism because of this fact.
End Citizens United spokesman Adam Bozzi is confident that this backlash will not prove to be a hurdle in its fight against billionaires who force their money to run campaigns that damage the elections and campaign. The recent challenge to End Citizens United will be an opportunity for the movement to highlight the harmful influence of the kind of money that they want to get rid of from the elections. The supporters of the End Citizens United will continue in their fight to get money off the rigged political system today by championing reforms in state ballot measures and raising this concern to the national discussion.
The people behind End Citizens United are continuing their passion for overturning the Supreme Court Decision that gave Citizens United the chance to use the money to compromise the transparency in the electoral campaigns. The End Citizens United movement will continue to push for an effort to disclose all the money that is donated by companies for the candidates.
