The 28th Amendment Committee of New Mexicans for Money Out of Politics (NMMOP) is now engaged in a pledge drive, promoting the American Promise (AP) 28th Amendment Candidate and Elected Official Pledge.
The Pledge is a way for candidates and elected officials at all levels to support – and pledge to use their office to advance – a 28th Amendment to the US Constitution: limiting the undue influence of money in politics; protecting equal representation for all Americans; and preserving constitutional rights and liberties for people, not legal entities such as corporations and special interests.
