End Citizens United has just announced that it is going to endorse Doug Jones, a Democrat, for U.S. Senate. It has given a lot of reasons why this is being done.
Doug Jones is a former U.S. attorney. He will be running in the special election in Alabama. This will be against Roy Moore and will be held on Dec. 12.
End Citizens United claims that Moore is an extremist who has a bigoted agenda. Hence he will be defending a corrupt system in Washington. This is why it is important that he does not reach the Senate as he will be promoting their special interests while ignoring the everyday needs of the Alabamians. All this was announced by End Citizens United in a statement.
They say that Roy Moore has a radical agenda. This should not reach the U.S. Senate. He has an extreme ideology. This is in deep contrast to the values of Alabama and even America. While he was in Washington, Moore was giving the Big Money spenders having special interests much more importance than politics. In this way, Moore has been embarrassing Alabamians repeatedly. In addition, Moore and his wife have made over $1 million. This was from a charity owned and controlled by them.
This is why End Citizens United is endorsing Doug Jones who is known for being a man of character along with integrity. He has always been known to be a strong prosecutor. He always does what is right. He will be moving with the same commitment to the Congress. He will be able to unrig the system so that it starts to work for all Americans.
People of Alabama have been watching how Washington is leaving them behind. They are looking for reform that will empower voters. They will like to upend the broken system as it is prioritizing the deep-pocketed interests. These are ignoring the everyday needs of the Alabamians. Even Jones is keen to work with End Citizens United as he would like to curb this corrupting influence that Big Money is able to exert in politics.
End Citizens United has made certain other revelations too. They say that Moore is aligned with several special interest mega-donors who do shady businesses. These include the Mercer family as well as their close aide, Steve Bannon.
End Citizens United feels that the campaign of Moore is being supported by hate groups along with secretive organizations having dark money. He will only aid in promoting their causes in case he reaches the Senate.
This is something that End Citizens United will not like to happen. Hence it has decided to endorse Jones who is a committed person and understands the needs of the Albanians well.
Legal systems are the complex, seemingly invisible structures that govern so many interlocking parts of our lives. They are comprised of a wide variety of specific laws. These laws are established to help determine things like the most optimal way for a business to treat its employees, manufacture its products or manage its participation in the stock market. They set guidelines for how transportation systems should be designed, the kinds of qualifications that secondary school teachers must have to be hired or whether or not a doctor should be required to take certain precautions before attending to a patient on the operating table. Domestic laws can govern the kinds of ingredients that can be used to formulate hair products, the standards that farmers must meet to grow and sell vegetables and how the collective of hospitals, clinics and medical professionals that comprise a health care system should deliver care to patients.
Virtually every society has created and implemented its own paradigms for deciding how to develop the policies that govern public life, civil society and business. The area of law that gives special attention to the ways that the legal systems of various nation-states interact with and resemble one another is known as comparative law. There are countless legal questions that fall under comparative law. These inquiries might concern the legal agreements or treaties that are drafted between two countries that lay out the terms of the end of a conflict that have been mutually-agreed upon. Comparative law practitioners might concern themselves with a treaty that is meant to promote gender equality. In the case of comparative law specialist Sujit Choudry there are areas of the field that have to do with how the central document that serves as a nervous system of sorts for a political system are put together.
Choudry’s scholarship and hands-on work have looked at how the process of creating a constitution works within political contexts where a nation that is transitioning from being ruled by an authoritarian regime to being governed by a constitutional democracy. He has used his skills as an academic to develop approaches to the constitution drafting process that he has used to advise governments like Jordan, Libya and Egypt.

Choudry’s road to becoming a comparative law expert has been a long one. He began as a clerk in Canada’s highest court and from there he went on to teach law at some of the country’s most prestigious universities. He has taught at the University of California, Berkley, New York University School of Law and the University of Toronto. More of it here in berkleylawblogs.org.
