As I noted in my Congressional Reform Plan, Leadership PACs have basically become slush funds for Members of Congress. Leadership PACs were initially created as a tool for members of the House and Senate leadership to dole out favors and use cash to help maintain their positions. Not exactly a noble beginning, but since then things have gotten worse. These so-called “leadership” accounts have essentially become political slush funds that help members “advance their political agendas, their careers and, in many cases, their lifestyle.” Donations made from a leadership PAC can “be used for literally anything.” I will support legislation to end this practice if elected.
