Resistbot Petition: Senator, co-sponsor and pass the Protecting Our Democracy Act now!

An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Senator, co-sponsor and pass the Protecting Our Democracy Act now!

156 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

Regardless of how you feel about any particular president, it’s clear that our democracy needs new legislation to prevent future abuses of presidential power and corruption, and to make the presidency more transparent. The Protecting Our Democracy Act (PODA), a package of pro-democracy reforms passed by the House of Representatives last year, would: Ban presidents from personally taking money from foreign governments; Strengthen protections against foreign interference in U.S. elections; Ban presidents from pardoning themselves, or from using pardons for bribes; Make it harder to seek retribution against federal whistleblowers; Enable a timely and orderly presidential transition of power. PODA would ensure that all presidents put the American people’s interests above their own, and help ensure they focus on issues like combating inflation and protecting our national security—and not using their office for personal gain. I want the Senator to co-sponsor it. Thanks.
