We look forward to having Derek Cressman for our March – Happy Hour. Book discussion and signing of his new book When Money Talk$.
Derek Cressman has worked professionally to strengthen #campaignfinancelaws since 1995 as Director of the State PIRG’s Democracy Program and Vice President for States with #CommonCause. He ran for California Secretary of State in the June 2014 primary.
When Money Talks offers:
New thinking: Cressman argues political advertising isn’t free speech, it’s paid speech and so shouldn’t be subject to the same protections.
New tactics: Describes both what a constitutional amendment to limit money in politics should say, and an overlooked tactic voters can use to get it passed.When Money Talks – The High Price of “Free” Speech and the Selling of Democracy
