We'll discuss the history of big money in American politics, the reasons why so many people see it as a major problem for our democracy and the reasons why a constitutional amendment is necessary to solve the problem.
We will draw from Lawrence Lessig's book, Republic Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress and a Plan to Stop It, and from Jane Mayer's book, Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, as well as other sources.
We'll explore how a string of Supreme Court decisions, leading up to and including Citizens United, have weakened campaign finance laws and allowed wealthy donors to dominate our political system.
And we'll discuss the process of amending the U.S. Constitution and what ordinary citizens can do to help get an amendment passed.
Instructor: Greg Falk
Greg Falk is a retired non-profit executive director. He's active in the Tucson Citizens Climate Lobby and in American Promise - Arizona, working for an amendment to get big money out of politics.
