Sarbanes Wants to Bring Back Fair Elections: Rebecca Forte Interviews the Congressman
It seems that most Americans can agree that they are feeling ignored. For years politicians have overlooked the majority of their constituents’ actual concerns about finances, the environment, and health. Instead, they listen to the small group of wealthy people who funnel millions of dollars to their campaigns.... In the past I’ve written about both Maryland groups and local candidates who are working to change this corrupt, oligarchic system. However, what if there was someone on the inside who desired change as well? What if a U.S. Congressman was on our side? ... Be it karma, or ethics, John Sarbanes is just that. Our own local District 3 Representative is proposing solutions to this problem at the federal level! ... Knowing the Congressman’s interest in campaign finance reform, I reached out to him for more information on this bill and his reasoning for sponsoring it.
