Stop John Walters From Stealing Your Money


A recent investigation by the Chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform found that the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) used taxpayer money to boost support for Republican candidates in 2006. U.S. Drug Czar John Walters and his deputies travelled to almost twenty events with vulnerable Republican members of Congress in the months prior to the election. The taxpayer-financed trips were orchestrated by President Bush's political advisors and often combined with the announcement of federal grants or actions that benefited the districts of the Republican members.

The Drug Czar's office has been caught using taxpayer money to influence elections. Tell your members of Congress to amend federal law to prohibit the Drug Czar and his deputies from using taxpayer money to lobby or campaign.
