MobLogic: Money Talks, Louder Than Votes

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

MobLogic comes to us from CBS Interactive. On April 7th host Lindsay Campbell tackled the issue of campaign cash, as we have before, using stats provided by our friends at the Center for Responsive Politics. They also use some footage from a PSA released by our partner Declare Yourself.

On their blog, MobLogic wonders what the candidates feel about Clean Elections, something Senator John McCain answered when we met in Manchester, New Hampshire. At Common Cause’s Common Blog, Josh Zaharoff reviews Lindsay’s vlog:

They keep it light hearted, but it’s excellent to see coverage of the money — not just how much, but where it comes from, and whether that’s good for democracy or not. That’s not a rhetorical question. More small donors getting involved is a great development, but it’s not clear how permanent and widespread the trend is.

We often point out that despite the fact that spending on United States elections is far beyond what any other country spends, we rank 139th of 172 countries in voter turnout.
