confronting CORRUPTION

The president violates the Constitution on a daily basis, administration officials defy ethics laws, while the corrupting influence of money in politics persists across party lines and across the country. This cannot stand. CREW has taken more than 400 legal actions since the beginning of this administration to fight for a government that is accountable to the people, rather than one that is operating in secret, corrupted by self interest.

about CREW

When personal profits are prioritized over ethics, and secret money damages our institutions, CREW fights abuses of power and violations of the law. We must hold our leaders to a higher standard than simply walking the line between legality and criminality. Since our founding in 2003, we have worked to hold leaders of both parties accountable for unethical conduct. By demanding transparency and ethics from our leaders, we can defend our democracy and prevent the current crisis from becoming the new normal.
