Joan Claybrook at The New School

Check out a video of Public Citizen President Joan Claybrook's recent panel discussion at The New School.  The panel was well-attended – focusing on "How to Return Democracy to the People."  Joined by former lawmakers and political scientists, the vibrant discussion dealt with the burden on politicians to drum up campaign cash and  showed how full public funding for congressional elections would do a lot to end the money chase.  Joan was joined by former Senators Bob Kerrey and Warren Rudman, John Rauh of Americans for Campaign Reform, Costas Panagopoulos, PhD., and Brennan Center Executive Director Michael Waldman.
