Chasing the Money

In November, voters in Maine will find an intriguing referendum on their ballots. The Maine Clean Election Act, endorsed by a wide coalition that crosses party lines would, if enacted, force sweeping changes in the state’s politics as usual. "We really believe Maine will be the state to break through the glass ceiling on the campaign finance reform issue," says Maine Voters for Clean Elections campaign manager David Donnelly. "We want to put the citizens back in charge of the election process."
