Next Week's LA City Elections and Campaign Spending

Hosted by  • 

When the US Supreme Court decided the Citizens United case three years ago, it said corporations, labor unions and other special interest groups could spend unlimited amounts of money on independent political campaigns. Since then, campaign spending has skyrocketed to a grand total of $6 billion for last year's local, state and federal elected offices. Proposition C on next week's Los Angeles City ballot would send a message to Washington.
