Corporate Campaign Fundraising Goes into Overdrive

Hosted by

The Tea Party movement has made political headlines, but the big news in this year's congressional races will be money. In January, the Supreme Court legalized unlimited campaign spending by corporations and unions, and corporate America is hoping to change control of the Congress. Right now, Democrats have more cash on hand, but corporate support for Republicans will be massive and contributors can remain anonymous.  Money and secrecy can be a potent political combination. We talk about their potential impact on November's mid-term elections.
