Received this e-mail today from Senator Mark Udall's (D. CO) campaign:
In 2010 the Citizens United case opened the floodgates to allow corporate special interest groups and billionaires like the Koch brothers to hijack our elections through unlimited anonymous attacks. We’re talking about hundreds of millions of dollars being spent for the sole purpose of buying an election — with no transparency as to who’s writing the check.

That’s why I’m fighting to pass the DISCLOSE Act in the U.S. Senate in order to require special interest groups to reveal the sources of their big donations. Coloradans have the right to know who is trying to influence our elections and flood our TV airwaves with million-dollar negative campaigns.

Sign our petition to pass the DISCLOSE Act and restore transparency and integrity to our elections.

The Koch brothers, Karl Rove, and other dark money groups have dumped more than $5 million into Colorado alone this year to smear my record of standing up for Colorado. But the source of these millions is still hidden from the public.

Tell Congress: Pass the DISCLOSE Act so we can put an end to dark money spending and restore integrity to our elections.

A Republican minority blocked a 2012 version of this commonsense legislation, but this time around, we’re building a grassroots support coalition to fight back. I hope you’ll join our cause to shine a light on the dark money in our elections.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
