1.3.17: Stop sneaky Republicans from gutting independent ethics office
Hey House Republicans: we're onto you.
Last night, House Republican Robert Goodlatte of Virginia announced that the party's caucus had approved a measure that will go before the full House tomorrow to gut an independent Congressional ethics office and put decisions about ethics violations in the hands of -- you guessed it -- Republican lawmakers. It gets worse: if adopted, the rule disallows anonymous accusations of ethics violations and frees Congress from reporting violations to the public or other government bodies. The good news? Republican leaders are against this, and we can fight it. Today's very urgent call to action: call your Representatives as soon as possible and tell them not to approve House rules that gut the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Act right away: stop House members from approving rules that strip the OCE of its oversight.
Call your representative in the House today, and use our simple script:
