About the Spirit of Democracy
SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY CALIFORNIA is a political action committee (PAC) established to provide independent expenditure support for candidates in selected legislative districts throughout California. Spirit of Democracy America is doing the same in selected congressional districts.

Most of the funding for Spirit of Democracy is provided by its chairman, Charles T. Munger Jr., who is responsible for selecting candidates and approving every independent expenditures done on their behalf, including television, radio and direct mail. Spirit of Democracy has other supporters and is actively seeking others to join the effort.

Under state and federal election law, independent expenditure campaigns must be truly independent.  As such, no communication between Spirit of Democracy and the candidates we support is permitted.  We adhere to this prohibition absolutely, without exception. 

At the same time, we are committed to transparency and full public disclosure, which is why our website includes information about the candidates we support and the campaign efforts undertaken on their behalf.  Because of the non-communication prohibition, this information is published only after it has been made public.

As a further safeguard against receiving any strategic information about the candidates we support or their campaigns, we must decline emails or telephone calls from the public, except from members of the news media.
