Local leaders support amendment separating money and politics

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Congressman John Yarmuth and other local leaders rallied Wednesday to gain support for a very controversial idea.

They want to add an amendment to the Constitution and remove money from politics.

The amendment has been proposed by Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico and would address campaign finance reform. The legislation would curb the amount of outside money that could go into politics and campaigns.

"I believe it's this inordinate amount of money coming into the system that has led to this cynicism of government, of congress, about politicians," said Congressman Yarmuth.

This is not the first time Congressman Yarmuth has supported a sentiment like this. He offered a similar amendment during this past term of Congress.
