Andy Kim Celebrates New Anti Lobbying Legislation with Lobbyists Who Gave Him Campaign Cash

WASHINGTON, D.C.-Democrat Congressman Andy Kim today paraded members of the End Citizens United PAC to celebrate pending legislation to end lobbying and money from political action committees in Washington, D.C.

There’s just one problem, End Citizens United is a political action committee that donates campaign money to candidates like Andy Kim in order to influence political legislation in Washington, D.C.

Kim received $13,000 from End Citizens United during his 2017 political campaign.   The partisan committee raised $4.7 million since 2016, all of which went to Democrat candidates and political action committees that support Democrat and progressive initiatives.

“I’m proud to stand with End Citizens United and my colleagues as we get ready to vote for H.R. 1 tomorrow. We can truly clean up our government and make Washington work for the people, and H.R. 1 is a critical first step,” Kim’s staff posted today on Facebook. “This is what I came here to do. I look forward to delivering on this promise of putting power back in the hands of the people of our state.”

The power to the people who are Democrats, that is.

Speaking out #ForThePeople on H.R. 1

I'm proud to stand with End Citizens United and my colleagues as we get ready to vote for H.R. 1 tomorrow. We can truly clean up our government and make Washington work for the people, and H.R. 1 is a critical first step. This is what I came here to do. I look forward to delivering on this promise of putting power back in the hands of the people of our state. Congressman Tom MalinowskiCongressman Max RoseRep.

Although Kim routinely suggests he is a politician ready to work across the aisle, his association with End Citizens United is rooted in a deep seeded partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans.  The organization also made $216,000 in untraceable “soft money” donations during that period.

The PAC received most of their financing from the elderly and retired, according to Open Secrets.

Here are the top donors, according to federal election filings.  Few if any of Kim’s donors through the PAC are New Jersey residents.
