Removing dark money @ The library
Aug 24 @ 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — A group organizing in an effort to remove dark money from politics will meet at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library on Thursday at 7 p.m.

According to organizers, local citizens are concerned that corporate and special interests have captured Congress and other legislative bodies through large campaign contributions, and want to do something about it.  

“It is a chance to work together with others across party lines on a common goal of rescuing our democracy,” organizer Kris Korfanta said of the meeting.

“We have a number of people who have sharp differences in political ideas, but we all agree that something must be done to limit the corruptive influence of unlimited money in politics.”

The group is joining the statewide effort of Wyoming Promise to get a citizens’ initiative placed on the November 2018 ballot so that Wyoming citizens can stand up and call for an amendment to the United States Constitution declaring that corporations are not people and money is not speech.

To date, 19 states have enacted measures calling on Congress to propose an amendment overturning Citizens United.

Both Colorado and Montana passed ballot measures in 2012 by wide margins (nearly 75 percent in favor), calling for that amendment.

“It is our goal to be the 20th state,” said Dick Shackleford, another local organizer. “We need the signatures of approximately 4,000 voters in Sheridan county. We need help to accomplish this, so join us in this nonpartisan effort Thursday evening.”

Allan Simpson is a key supporter of the effort and stated in a recent Casper Star-Tribune editorial, “I am committed to working with Wyomingites and Americans to pass a 28th Amendment to our Constitution so people — not money, corporations, unions or special interests — govern America.”

The library is located at 335 W. Alger St.
