How to secretly buy an election
April 26, 2012
According to The Washington Post, Karl Rove's Super PAC is running a second batch of ads in Virginia to influence our U.S. Senate race.
Progressive Point: Election outcomes shouldn't hinge on who has the biggest corporate donors. But here in Virginia, secret special interests are trying to buy a Senate seat. Karl Rove's shadowy Super PAC is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to influence our elections without disclosing their donors.
It's no wonder folks are losing faith in our political system. Special interests are spending record amounts of money, in secret and with no accountability, so politicians will answer to them instead of voters. For Virginians to get a fair shot, we need representatives who were elected by and for us, not bought and paid for by secret special interests.
