End Citizens United is a political organization. Recently, it went to the Federal Election Commission to file a complaint. According to the complaint, Rick Scott is using “unlawful” methods to support his senatorial campaign. In what they are calling a “super PAC,” they allege that Scott is circumnavigating the elections rules by using other means to engage in campaigns contribution. Already, he has surpassed the limits that have been set by the Federal Election Commission. So far, he has raised over $78 million for his campaigns.
The super PAC can raise as much and spend as much money as it can, but it should not be seen to work with any campaign team. PAC is supposed to contain and monitor elections contributions, but it seems to be working with Rick Scott to give him a head start. Before announcing that he would be running for the seat of the Senator, Scott was the chairman of the PAC. Clearly, he is working with the current leadership to violate the anti-coordination laws. PAC has already indicated that it is going to help him win the election which brings in the aspect that End Citizens United has raised.
According to the Director for End Citizens United, Rick Scott is hell-bent on winning the election even if it means violating the laws which are supposed to guide senatorial election. By channeling some of the money through the super PAC which is meant for presidential elections only, he is clearly violating the law. Mr. Adam Bozzi, the Communications Director, has indicated that PAC is helping him evade disclosure laws as well as helping him raise money illegally.
Although Rick Scott campaign has denied any possibility of getting favors from PAC, End Citizens United has gone further to table documents which show that Rick Scott has been working with PAC until recently. One of the evidence that they have tabled shows that the company has listed Rick Scott as the chairman on their website, although he left office earlier to run for the senatorial seat.
Rick Scott has shown that he cannot adhere to the laws which were put in place in order to remove big money from political competitions and the best way for the end citizens to is to defeat him at the ballot. The organization is also committed to pushing for a change in laws such that sources of donations can be revealed. The headquarters of this organization is in Washington DC.

People will always standup whenever there is an injustice, and this is a fascinating aspect of the social and political dynamics of our civilization. The judiciary and the court system have been part of our society, and throughout history, their rulings have changed and affected events of the future.
One of the most significant judgments was one done by the Supreme Court of the United States Citizens United against Federal Election Commission. The ruling stirred an uproar in the whole country as private corporations and individuals were allowed to fund political campaigns without any form regulation. Similar to other cases such as the Brown against Board of Education that have stood out to be controversial rulings.
Citizen United and most of the people of the United States including some Republican supporters have a different opinion regarding the election law that deprived people of their freedom of speech. End Citizens United has its objective to support candidates that are in favour of improving the rules about campaign finance.
Currently, reports indicate that an extended number of leaders in the Republican Party do not support the amendment of the laws about the financing of campaigns. End Citizens United has been using the digital platform as a way of raising funds to help Democrats and individuals that pledge to change the election finance bill. One of the most outstanding victories of Citizens United is the campaigning for the year 2004 that featured the triumph of Howard Dean.
Famous campaigns like the Obama campaign in 2008 also showed how small donors could influence the political future of the nation. End Citizens United has indeed created a collaborative environment where individuals are having the same goal are brought together. Ever since its founding in 2015, Citizens United has sought to fight Citizen United operations that take advantage of substantial unregulated funds from cooperations. End Citizens United is focused on bestowing the electoral voice back to individuals as the ruling of the Supreme Court gave way for associations to have more say in the political culture of the people. More open government firms and political activists linked to the Democrats have joined in the fight to put an end to Citizens United. The Centre for Political Accountability, the Sunlight Foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the League of Women Voters are part of the organizations that have opposed the undertakings of Citizens United.
