Chamber of Commerce Watch

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has since 2002 periodically run ads that attack the legal system. The ads, which often coincide with elections, are fraudulent and appear designed to provide fodder for Chamber-supported candidates in competitive races and divert the attention of voters away from the continuing wave of corporate fraud.

Press Release: Enforcement Action Sought in Case Stemming From U.S.Chamber of Commerce’s Covert Funneling of $1.5 Million Into Washington Attorney General Race, Oct. 11, 2005.

Statement by Joan Claybrook: Chamber Should Be Held Accountable for Campaign Operations, Oct. 11, 2005.

Because Public Citizen does not accept funds from corporations, professional associations or government agencies, we can remain independent and follow the truth wherever it may lead. But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
