Russ Feingold, the former US Senator from Wisconsin, is taking the campaign finance world by storm. His Progressives United movement is working to tackle “Super PACs” and the corporate influence he feels is bastardizing democracy. This is a critical time for Russ. Continue pushing for change through his organization or go for another opening in the US Senate or the governorship of Wisconsin.
As Feingold so eloquently said in this speech:
What do you think? Do you agree with the outcome of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision that changed the rules regarding corporate campaign expenditures? Do PACs play a necessary role in our political discourse or are they too easily abused?
Sound off in the comments.
