About the Campaign

Gil Fulbright is a satirical presidential candidate — an “honest politician” who will openly take any position on any issue in exchange for a large political contribution. We’re running Gil in the most expensive presidential election in U.S. history to make sure America’s corruption crisis stays in the national spotlight for the entire 2016 campaign.

Who’s behind all this?

We’re Represent.Us, a nationwide campaign of conservatives, progressives and everyone in between working together to pass anti-corruption laws in cities and states across the country. These laws protect our local communities from corruption, force politicians to represent people instead of special interests, and build momentum for national reform.

America’s Corruption Crisis

The 2016 presidential race will be the most expensive election in U.S. history — projected at more than $5 billion! Politicians from both political parties are completely dependent on the handful of elites who bankroll their political careers. Big donors are buying politicians, and their lobbyists are writing our laws. Corruption is legal in America.

Things are so bad, a 20 year study by top political scientists found that “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”

One thing that does have an impact? Money. Economic elites, business interests, and people who can afford lobbyists get what they want, and the rest of us pay the price.
