People For the American Way Activists Hold Light Brigade Action to Send Message: Ayotte Won’t #GetMoneyOut
Manchester, NH- Friday July 10th, People For the American Way and allies joined the Seacoast Overpass Light Brigade to hold boxes with LED light letters over the South Willow St Bridge in Manchester to spell the message “Ayotte Won’t #GetMoneyOut.”
Sen. Kelly Ayotte has repeatedly refused to support a constitutional amendment that would overturn cases like Citizens United and restore the ability of Congress and the states to set reasonable limits on money in elections. In previous public statements and letters to activists, Sen. Ayotte has characterized a constitutional amendment as “dangerous.” People For the American Way and allies delivered over 12 thousand petitions in support of the Democracy For All Amendment to her Manchester offices in May.
“We are joining together to hold Sen. Ayotte accountable for ignoring the voices of the 69 percent of New Hampshire voters who support a constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics,” said PFAW New Hampshire Campaign Organizer Lindsay Jakows. “Voters are increasingly concerned about the influence of money in politics this election season, which is something the senator has clearly failed to recognize.”
