It appears that the reports about Senate Democrats bringing the DISCLOSE Act to the Senate floor for another vote have merit. Senators Schumer and Leahy just sent a campaign email stating that they intend to bring the DISCLOSE Act up for another vote in September. From the email:
Fighting for something means when you get knocked down, you get right back up again.
Tens of thousands of people have signed our DISCLOSEact.com petition to pledge their support for closing new loopholes in corporate election spending.
So just because we came up one vote shy of passing our bill at the end of July doesn’t mean we’ve given up — in fact, we’re getting right back up and putting the DISCLOSE Act up for a vote again in September. (emphasis in original)
The email also asks recipients to sign their online petition form and write letters to the editors of local newspapers because their Senate colleagues are back home paying closer attention to their constituents.
