The American Family Association (AFA) is sounding a warning about a campaign finance bill before the U.S. Senate.
H.R. 5175, the bill is known as the “DISCLOSE Act,” has been passed by the House and is expected to come up in the Senate this week.
According to Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis for AFA, the “Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections Act” would muzzle pro-family groups.
“This is a campaign finance reform — quote, end quote — bill. [But] what it’s going to do is…censor and muzzle the voice of pro-life and pro-family organizations leading up to both primary and general elections,” Fischer explains. “But the Democrats carved out a major exception for all their union buddies. The Sierra Club has an exemption, and the AARP has an exemption.”
