Working to Reform Campaign Finance Laws

Former president of the public affairs non-partisan lobbying group Common Cause, Fred Wertheimer.

Wertheimer stepped down earlier this year after 14 years as President. He's been called "the capital's most vocal crusader for reforming the political system" by The Wall Street Journal.
