We’ve rescheduled from our earlier event which was postponed due to the DC Blizzard:
Campaign financing is one of today’s most divisive political issues. The Left asserts that the electoral process is rife with corruption. The Right protests that the real aim of campaign limits is to suppress political activity and protect incumbents. Meanwhile, money flows freely on both sides.
Join us for a presentation on Richard Hasen’s new book Plutocrats United, in which Hasen argues that both the Left and the Right avoid the key issue of the new Citizens United era: balancing political inequality with free speech.
There will be a book signing at the end of the event!
Richard L. Hasen is the Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of California, Irvine School of Law. Professor Hasen is a nationally recognized expert in election law and campaign finance regulation who writes the indispensable Election Law Blog..
