Bipartisan campaign-finance reform was dealt a serious blow in 2010 with the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling and subsequent decisions. Five years later, questions loom. Are all campaign contributions now protected "speech" under the Constitution? How can elections work best when "deep-pockets" secretly attempt to control the results and often drown out civil discussion? In this new environment, policymakers are exploring how to keep our democracy healthy and strong. Panelists include Eva Paterson, President & Co-Founder of the Equal Justice Society; Nate Percily, Professor of Law at Stanford; and Pete Peterson, Executive Director of the Davenport Institute at Pepperdine University. Moderated by Dick Beahrs of the Center for Civility and Democratic Engagement at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Recorded on 04/18/2015. (#29426)
