Leading advocate for election reform, MA Sen. Jamie Eldridge joins us. We'll start with a few of his bills in the works. Notably, the Massachusetts Disclose Act (S.321/H.651, cosponsored by Rep. Cory Atkins) would let voters know before an election is over who's paying for ad campaigns and funneling money to support candidates — that dark money.
Following Citizens United and subsequent elections like the recent Boston one, the many flaws in campaign-financing laws have become obvious. Sen. Eldridge is hard at work identifying the problems and trying to fix them.
Tune in to hear his solutions and the prospects for them.
