The destructive influence of “dark money” in campaign finance.

The truth on how American elections are bought and sold. Plus, Fred Wertheimer and the movement to restore ethics and integrity to government.

Kimberly Reed

Kimberly Reed’s film, “Dark Money”, is a powerful expose of the influence of anonymous donors in political campaigns. She says growing up in Montana gave her a front-row seat to the corrupting influence of money in politics and the perfect setting to tell that story.

Fred Wertheimer

Fred Wertheimer has played a key role in every major campaign finance reform and ethics battle in Congress since the post-Watergate reforms in the 1970s. He continues that career as President of Democracy 21, where he calls on Congress to restore integrity to governing.

A Tear-Jerker About the Housing Saga of Some Rich Jerks

The “old homeplace” is a classic theme of Americana, expressed in everything from Norman Rockwell paintings to Woody Guthrie’s powerful folk lament, “I Ain’t Got No Home In This World Anymore.”

But for a heart-rending, modern-day version of the emotional pull of home, you can’t beat the poignant wail of a new song entitled: “The Low-down Down-home Atherton Rich Man Blues.” Warning: You might need a box of tissues to get through this sad saga.
