IamA founder of Kongregate and now am trying to reform money in politics with CounterPAC. AMA
Hi, I started a web games site called Kongregate, and then I used the money I made from that to start a SuperPAC called CounterPAC. We're fighting the influence of money in politics. And yes, it's a little ironic to use a SuperPAC to fight SuperPACs...
In California, CounterPAC has launched a campaign to support the passage of AB 700, aka the DISCLOSE Act. It requires the true, three largest funders of ads about ballot measures or candidates to be shown clearly and unambiguously on the ad.
The bill is on its way to the California Senate floor for consideration. However, there are rumors that the leader of the Senate, Kevin de León, and the chair of the Appropriations committee, may be caving to pressure from special interests to water the bill down.
If you believe voters deserve to know who's spending millions to influence their vote at the ballot box, take a minute and sign this petition urging Kevin de León and Ricardo Lara to keep the bill strong, and not cave to the pressure of special interests. Or, even better, call his office at (916) 651-4024.
Ok, happy to answer questions about games, political corruption, or whatever.
