Political Bribery, Corruption, Secret Money, and Broken Elections

Jan 03, 12:00 PM

Mike talks with Josh Silver, Director and co-founder of Represent.Us , a nonprofit organization that brings together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections.

Mike and Josh discuss why so many reformers take a left-wing approach, how big of a problem political corruption is, secret money and political speech, how to improve elections, and lots more.
