Democrats cry foul over fliers

May 17, 2016 Turn to 10

Wendy Schiller, professor of political science, comments on an incident involving a series of fliers being sent out to at least five state House districts in Rhode Island, who some Democratic representatives are calling illegal. "It's not illegal to try and influence people's minds and not tell people who is funding your efforts to do that, but Rhode Islanders want full disclosure. They want full disclosure from their government, and full disclosure from interest groups that are trying to sway people's minds. We should know who's paying for all this material," said Schiller.
