Marcia Squier on Government Reform
A: Strongly support.
Q: You posted on CrowdPAC on July 13, "Michigan's voice didn't matter because each superdelegate vote negated thousands of votes." How would you change the superdelegate rules?
A: I am not a Democrat, so I would have no pull within that party to change their rules, but I would support legislation that forced the Democratic Party to pay for its own primaries instead of the states if they continue to weight the vote totals this way.
Marcia Squier: I would wholeheartedly support an amendment that would repeal Citizens United. We desperately need to get the money out of politics. Campaigns should be publicly funded. Campaign donations should be strictly limited and enforced. Broadcasting stations and journalists should should be banned from making donations, as well as the companies that produce anything related to the electoral process, such as the voting machine manufacturers, which by the way, I believe should be banned in favor of hand-counted paper ballots, or at the very least, open-sourced coding software with audit-able paper trails and independent oversight. For my campaign, I am not soliciting campaign donations at this time.
Rep. Brenda Lawrence (Dem.): Yes, I firmly believe we need campaign finance reform.
