520 |a The necessity of raising huge sums of campaign cash has completely changed the character of politics and policy making, determining what elected representatives stand for and how they spend their time. Potter and Penniman expose legalized corruption and link it to the kitchen-table issues citizens face every day. They introduce us to the army of reformers laying the groundwork for change, ready to be called into action, hoping to lay bare the reach of moneyed interests and chart a way toward the recovery of America's original promise.
