Take Back Action Fund President John Pudner was qouted in a recent AJC updated for his comments on Bernie Sanders campaign being the only remaining campaign refusing to let banks veify credit card contributions. Read John's full comments below.
A campaign finance reform groupÂ based in neighboring Alabama has taken aim at Vermont Sen. Bernie Sandersâ€™ campaign for presidency.
John Pudner of the Take Back Action Fund called Sanders the only remaining presidential candidate who has refused to let banks verify his contributions by matching a credit card to the donor. The campaign instead relies on an outsider vendor for the work.
â€œBernie Sanders needs to put his money where his mouth is on campaign finance reform,â€ said Pudner, adding: â€œNo politician has benefited more from talking about campaign finance reform, but now itâ€™s time for him to lead by example and not just words.â€
The group is pushing HR4177, which aims to add an additional layer of verification to prevent foreigners or others with access to fraudulent bank accounts to funnel money to political candidates.Â A Sanders spokesman told Al JazeeraÂ it was a â€œsolution in search of a problem.â€
