Earlier today, Common Cause announced that its president, Karen Hobert Flynn, has passed away. The following is a statement from Trevor Potter,  founder and president of Campaign Legal Center:

"Karen Hobert Flynn’s dedication to protecting and strengthening our democracy was unwavering. Her leadership on issues of critical importance will be greatly missed, including safeguarding the freedom to vote, ethics, and transparency in the sources of funding for our elections and candidates. 

Under Karen’s direction, Common Cause was focused on fostering a more inclusive government at all levels, pursuing urgently needed reforms to serve voters. 

On a personal note, I would like to say that I have valued working with Karen over the years and always appreciated her advice and counsel.
