Outlaw Dirty Money to launch 2020 campaign against dark money. Cue the hallelujahs

Written by Laurie Roberts, Arizona Republic on Feb. 25, 2019

A group of Arizona voters are once again preparing to trudge up the slopes of Mount Everest. On roller skates. With hurricane force winds blowing smack into their faces.

Translation: they’re going to take another run at dark money – specifically on lifting the shroud on the people and groups that are secretly spending big money to buy elections in this state.

Arizona, get ready for Outlaw Dirty Money 2020. The group plans to file paperwork with the Secretary of State’s Office within the next week, hoping to put a new, improved version of the dark money initiative on the November 2020 ballot.

Pausing Campaign

Statement from Co-Chairs of the Outlaw Dirty Money Initiative Drive

With heavy hearts but a strong commitment to Arizona’s public health, we announce today that the Outlaw Dirty Money Constitutional Amendment campaign otherwise known as the “Citizens Right to Know Initiative” has paused all person to person efforts to gather petition signatures.

This suspension will last until our public health experts and our elected leaders deem it prudent for our volunteers and paid gatherers to resume public contact.  At that time, we will decide if enough time is left to gather enough signatures to put the issue of transparency in Arizona campaign finance before the voters in November.  

During this pause, Outlaw Dirty Money will keep working with our army of volunteers, ready to act when the health crisis abates.  In the meantime, they will do all possible to gather signatures without person to person contact. If you would like to help that effort, please contact us at info@outlawdirtymoney.com or call 602-633-5146.  If you support the suggested legislation changes, we encourage you to contact your legislator at https://www.azleg.gov/memberroster/

Co-chairs of Voters’ Right to Know initiative, 

  • Terry Goddard
  • Grant Woods
  • Paul Johnson
  • Helene and Jim Babbitt
  • Robert Bertrand
  • Nan and Dick Walden
