Rubio: Senate Democrats Should Say No to Foreign Donations

Sep 22, 2022 | Press Releases

Nearly every online transaction requires a customer verification value (CVV) as a form of cardholder verification. This simple requirement is standard practice across the e-commerce industry to reduce fraud and prevent unlawful foreign transactions.
 
Shockingly, Democrat online fundraising platform ActBlue, which raises billions of dollars for progressive candidates and woke causes, does not require a CVV number as a condition of making a donation.
 
In response, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced legislation to ensure political organizations receiving online contributions require a CVV number. 
 

  • “This is an opportunity for Democrats to go on the record in support of keeping foreign money out of our elections. This common sense reform should pass by unanimous consent. Any elected official who opposes this bill begs the question of why they support allowing foreign money into U.S. elections.” – Senator Rubio

 
U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Deb Fischer (R-NE), and Josh Hawley (R-MO) are cosponsors of the legislation. 
 

  • “Democrats are obsessed with proposing nonsensical  ‘election overhaul bills’ that don’t do anything to make our elections more secure or address loopholes that allow the left to profit from dark money and foreign billionaires. This bill takes real action to reduce fraud in political donations and prevent foreign contributions.” – Senator Hawley

 
Context… The partisan DISCLOSE Act does nothing to eliminate this threat.  
 
Background… In August, Rubio submitted an amendment to the Democrats’ $749 billion climate and tax bill that would have compelled ActBlue to require the CVV for all online donations. The amendment did not receive a vote. Rubio announced his intent to file the legislation in August.
