End Citizens United’s main goal is to make sure political campaigns are kept free of political persuasion by monetary means. ECU works with candidates that are like minded in keeping big money out of the political system so topics and discussions aren’t swayed to lean one way or another. This objective also keeps donations from becoming unlimited and undisclosed.
End Citizens United have filed a complaint against Rick Scott stating that Scott is using PAC to support his political campaign. It is stated that he used PAC to get around the federal monetary limits that is placed on contributions that are directly made. To date, Scott has raised almost $80 million for his campaign so far.
What the PAC is for is to raise as much money as needed and spend what was needed in order to get elected without coordinating monies and working directly with campaigns. But, evidence shows otherwise with Rick Scott’s campaign as End Citizens United has been building a case against Scott.

Adam Bozzi feels that Scott is only looking out for his own political agenda instead of being for the law. Bozzi states that Scott has found a loop hole in the system allowing soft money that is meant for the president, be used for his campaign. But Rick Scott is already denying the accusations, but End Citizens United has presented evidence that states something very different.
End Citizens United knows their objective in getting big money out of politics and changing some of the disclosures will take a while to occur. Two short term goals is to keep campaigners from being able to hide the identity of those who made contributions and elect more Democrats for both Houses of Congress. Bozzi feels this is a band aid fix and for long term an amendment to the constitution or matters need to be taken to court. The argument is that unlimited contributions are not a part of freedom of speech.
