Eric Griego for Congress (NM-1) was the first candidate for federal office in the U.S. to sign the "99 Pledge" started by the Occupy/99% Movement. The Occupy Santa Fe organizers presented the pledge to Griego to sign at the "Occupy the Roundhouse" rally in Santa Fe, NM in front of the State Capitol Building.
Started by Occupy Santa Fe, and to be launched nationally on Wednesday, January 18th, the "99 Pledge" states:
"The Pledge for a Democratic America: I, Eric Griego, do hereby pledge to the people of the United States, that upon next taking office, I will work with particular focus to prevent corporations from directly or indirectly expending money to influence any election in the United States of America. I will work to limit private contributions to provide similar access for all Americans to the political process. I pledge to work together with other legislators to enact fair and just legislation and amendments to the Constitution, returning democracy forever to the people."
