Get to Know Wolf PAC
Since the Supreme Court has taken a wrecking ball to the wall of separation between wealth and state and Congress has been complicit, we are pursuing a Free and Fair Elections Amendment via the state-based convention route. The Article V convention route for proposing amendments was our founders' safeguard for representative democracy in case our federal government ever became unresponsive to the people.
Academy Co-presenter Sam Fieldman joined Wolf-PAC on day one for two reasons, his twin girls, Hanna and Ginny who would be born a few weeks later. Sam went to the Fordham Law School with the idea of learning to use the law as a tool to follow the instructions of our founders to create "a more perfect union." He began his legal career in the Public Integrity Bureau of the New York State Attorney General's Office, investigating political corruption, especially a pay to play scheme involving private equity firms and the 100 million dollar New York State Common Retirement Fund.
Sam was working in the private sector when the citizens United decision prompted him to study campaign finance laws and how to fix the problems created, not just by that decision, but by the Court going back to the 1970s. He found the Article V Convention process, but knew it could only be used with a large organization of dedicated volunteers. That was why he joined Wolf-PAC as soon as it was announced. Since that time, he has served in various roles and currently serves as National Counsel.
