Money has always mattered in politics, perhaps never more than now. The Supreme Court's 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission prohibited the government from restricting political independent expenditures, thus unleashing mega-bucks offensives by lobbyists, battling ideologue billionaires, and big money interest groups. In this timely new book, Kenneth Vogel describes how this single high court decision and stealthy legal tricks are changing the realities of American politics and marginalizing the power of both voters and independent public officials. Filled with fascinating, chilling details, Big Money informs readers about hard realities about our future.
