CLEAN MONEY DAY SCREENINGS
Clean money is when the public finances political campaigns.
Politicians are going to do the work of whoever funds their campaign. The only way to get them to do the public's work, is for the public to fund them.
It used to be that politicians had to represent the public in order to get votes. Television changed all that, and now elections are driven entirely by advertising purchased by those who are willing to pay -- and they always have an agenda. But if the public funds the campaign, then its agenda will come first.
It seems ridiculous to think a politician could ever be clean of lobbyist or special interest agendas. but it is possible, we just have to pay them to do it. And as every lobbyist knows, it's a darn good return on the investment.
