Federal Communications Commission:

Shadowy Super PACs and other dark-money groups are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on political ads that distort the truth and pollute democratic discourse.

Your agency has the authority to shed light on these groups and help Americans "know by whom they are being persuaded." The FCC’s sponsorship-identification rules state that advertisers must "fully and fairly disclose the true identity" of sponsors.

The FCC must act today to shed light on the money behind misleading political ads.

    Stop the Super PACs

    If you thought Election Day 2012 meant the end of toxic political ads, think again. Shadowy Super PACs are already raising millions from corporations and billionaires to flood the airwaves with misleading political ads.

    It’s time for the FCC to enforce its rules requiring real disclosure in political advertising.

    According to the agency’s rules, advertisers must "fully and fairly disclose the true identity" of whoever is paying for these ads. In other words, viewers are entitled to know who is trying to sway their vote.

    We need to expose the corporations and individuals funding misleading political ads.

    Tell the FCC to stop dark-money politics from destroying our democracy.
