Mansur Gidfar communications director for Represent.Us, an advocacy group, is host Joseph Cotto's guest this Sunday.

The conversation will be about Citizen's United which is well on it way to becoming one of the most controversial decisions in Supreme Court history. Generally speaking, what sort of impact has it had on federal elections?

Americans from both sides of the political spectrum want to limit the influence special interests wield over elected officials. After Citizens United, is this a realistic goal? Speaking of which, what is the most pernicious, yet little-known, manner in which special interests influence politicians?

In Congress and state legislatures, Democrats and Republicans rarely agree on much these days, including campaign finance reform. Are these disagreements the result of true ideological divisions or special interest pressure?

Listen to Cotto & Co. to find out.
