About Us

About two months after September 11th, Public Campaign launched HowDareThey.org to protest how wealthy special interests were raiding the U.S. Treasury, cashing in on all the access and influence they have bought with their campaign contributions and taking advantage of the war on terrorism to get special goodies for themselves. Thousands of people have joined our campaign against greedy lobbyists and corporate giveaways, and for Clean Money, Clean Elections campaign finance reform.

Now, other outrages, the Enron scandal topping the list, are begging the question, “How Dare They!” Big money is skewing government policy on everything from regulation of business, to environmental policy and the settng of budget priorities.

In the coming months, HowDareThey.org will keep a sharp focus on all these issues, and will keep educating and mobilizing the public for real change.
