W Amend Presents Derek Cressman ‘When Money Talks’ says
Big money and special interest groups have become increasingly entangled with local, state, and national elections. Derek Cressman, director of Common Cause’s Amend 2012 campaign, says this is destroying the democratic process. Building on the themes in his book When Money Talks, he’ll explain the ways courts have stopped attempts to limit campaign spending, what a constitutional amendment limiting paid speech should say, and explain how citizens can help pass such an amendment. All proceeds from this event will go to WAmend’s Yes on 735 campaign.
