Sen. Susan Collins voted with every other Republican last week against a constitutional amendment to overturn the terrible Citizens United decision and allow Congress and state legislatures to regulate big money in politics.

This isn’t the first time Collins has stopped campaign finance reform in its tracks. She voted twice in 2012 and once in 2010 against a bill called the Disclose Act, which would have made big political donors disclose their contributions quickly so voters would know who was trying to influence our elections.

Shenna Bellows doesn’t take corporate PAC money on principal; Collins has accepted millions from corporate PACs this election alone. Shenna has raised more in grassroots small-dollar contributions than Collins. Shenna fights for hardworking citizens. This year, I’m following the money and voting for Shenna Bellows.
