R.I. Congressman David N. Cicilline leads round-table discussion on campaign finance reform (Wendy Schiller quoted)

December 5, 2015

Rep. David Cicilline

Wendy Schiller, professor and chair of political science, gave remarks at a panel Saturday afternoon that focused on efforts to reform campaign finance. Companies and organizations, she said, are “looking to buy something” from the politicians they spend on, such as policy changes. If those pushing for campaign finance reform connected the dots for voters and showed them how the companies that make contributions reap benefits, voters would become more engaged, she said.
