Keynote Speech: Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), the keynote speaker and sponsor of the DISCLOSE Act, endorsed stricter disclosure requirements and criticized Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) recent remarks to the American Enterprise Institute attacking mandated disclosure as a threat to the First Amendment.
"I think it's very clear that the values of transparency and accountability are not some left wing agenda...they're important to a healthy democracy," said Van Hollen, calling secretive campaign spending a "growing threat to the health of our democracy."
