ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Members of MoveOn.org gathered in front of Congressman Don Manzullo's office in support of what they're calling the fight Washington corruption pledge.
The pledge calls for the overturning of the Supreme Court citizen’s united ruling, which allows corporations unlimited spending in support of political candidates or causes.
"There's so much big dollar influence from the corporations. That we feel that if influences the government and it puts and unfair disadvantage to the other 98% of us." said MoveOn.org member Joan Sveda.
The Supreme Court ruling passed by a 5 to 4 margin in January, with the majority saying this was a 1st Amendment issue and that the government has no business regulating political speech.
