LWV/ABC Considers the Influence of “Big Money” on Wisconsin Policy and Elections

The LWV/ABC is hosting two upcoming events to initiate discussion on the influence of "big money" on Wisconsin policy and elections, and the status of Wisconsin's political climate. 

On March 23, the league study group is offering a book discussion at the Washburn Library. Two books will be discussed: Dark Money by Jane Mayer; and The Politics of Resentment by Katherine Cramer. Both books are available at local bookstores or can be ordered through the Northern Waters Library System.

The following week, on March 30, the LWV/ABC is sponsoring Matt Rothschild, the Director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. He will be addressing the influence of “big money” on Wisconsin policy and elections. Any reform movement to restore balance between the 1% and the 99% will require a courageous campaign to enact sensible limitations on how much individuals and groups can “buy” influence. Rothschild's group is spearheading this effort, often in collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin.
