For too long, our politics has been poisoned with misinformation, lies and double-speak. The most powerful way to combat these tactics is to drag them into the light of public scrutiny.
The Accountability Project is a volunteer platform to document Republican candidates and their public statements at local events, as well as their campaign tactics. The Accountability Project allows you to submit videos, recordings, and other items for publication online, so that candidates see that there's a cost to their dishonesty.
This election year, the American people deserve an honest debate, free from misleading attacks, false claims and empty rhetoric. We need a debate focused on issues, and candidates who offer solutions, not lies and fear tactics.
Far too often, candidates turn to these tactics because they're confident they'll remain under the radar and out of the public eye. They know that they can make outrageous claims that go unchallenged and change their story for each new audience—saying one thing in Washington and another back home—while their campaigns launch vicious attacks that they themselves never have to answer for.
But it doesn't have to be this way—you can make sure that this year's elections are contested in the light of day.
The Accountability Project is a platform for you to hold candidates accountable for their claims, their public statements, and their campaign tactics. No matter where you live, you can:
- If you have a video camera of any kind, or even a cell phone that records video, you can document Republican candidate events, including speeches, forums, and public meetings.
- You can submit copies of candidate mailers, emails, and attack ads.
- You can also report upcoming public events in your area, so that other volunteers can document them.
You can submit these videos, recordings, and items for posting online through the Accountability Project, so that candidates see that there's a cost for their dishonesty.
For too long, our politics has been poisoned with misinformation and negative attacks. The most powerful way to combat these shadowy tactics is to drag them into the light of public scrutiny.
Through the Accountability Project, you can fight back, and show the American people the real choice they have this November.
