I don’t think money bought the Wisconsin recall vote based on data I’ve looked at after the election. But I do think it’s disgusting to see how much outside influence is possible in any state election, thanks to Citizens United. This post from Desert Dogmeh gives us a graphic illustration of the imbalance we’re looking at in campaign fundraising and spending, and it ain’t pretty.
I guess this is a thing we’ll just all have to get used to.
Thanks, Supreme Court/Citizens United.
At least we’ll start to have the stats necessary to be able to tell exactly how much cash it takes to buy any given election. (I know,… I know,…. Walker would have probably beaten Barrett anyway. But still….) On all local, state, and national levels. Kind of get a decent baseline on that.
Thanks again, Supreme Court/Citizens United.
