Our Public Advocate is part of a non-partisan organization called the Coalition for Accountability in Political Spending (CAPS). With shouts of foul play against well financed corporations heavily influencing political elections and legislation nationwide, this attempt by CAPS and other groups with similar objectives should be contemplated and discussed. Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, will be on TV later today to discuss how he believes campaign reform should be handled and what CAPS is doing to make sure our political system represents the needs of the people. If you can’t see the interview, I posted the web site to CAPS below for everyone to review.
If you have access to a TV this afternoon or can set your DVR, you’re going to want to tune in to MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan Show today for a special segment with Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio will be on the show live at 4pm to talk about the rise of corporate political spending in the run-up to the 2012 Presidential election, his work as part of the Coalition for Accountability in Political Spending (CAPS), and how we as consumers can help combat corporate influence in our elections.
The Public Advocate will be joined by Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post, Imogen Lloyd Webber of MSNBC, and Rob Cox of Reuters for what promises to be a great discussion.
The Dylan Ratigan Show airs at 4pm today on MSNBC – channel 14 and 714 on Time Warner Cable or channel 23 and 723 on Cablevision.
