Panel: Will Super PACs Determine the 2012 Election?

I participated in a lively panel discussion on Capitol Hill, hosted by the Sunlight Foundation and the Advisory Committee on Transparency. The topic: Will super PACs Determine the 2012 Election?

Moderated by Sunlight’s policy counsel, Daniel Schuman, the panel included Allen Dickerson, legal director for the Center for Competitive Politics; Mimi Marziani, counsel for the Democracy Program at New York University School of Law’s Brennan Center for Justice, and Paul Ryan, FEC program director and associate legal counsel at the Campaign Legal Center.

I was pleased when Allen Dickerson concurred with my call for a culture shift favoring transparency within the nonprofit community. The event was broadcast on C-SPAN. You can watch the whole discussion here.
