Worse Than Citizens United? McCutcheon v FEC

On the September 19, 2013 edition of Tell Somebody, we take a look at the upcoming Supreme Court case McCutcheon v Federal Election Commission, a case brought by a wealthy donor and the Republican National Committee seeking to overturn limits to contributions by individuals to candidates and committees.

First we hear from Scott Nelson, attorney at the Public Citizen litigation group in Washington D.C., and then we listen in on a telephone press conference put on by ReThink Media, "a non profit communications organization supporting the work of advocacy groups fighting back against the corrupting influence of money in our political system."

Representatives of three of six organizations supporting campaign finance reform that filed briefs in this case, The Campaign Legal Center, The Brennan Center, and The Constitutional Accountability Center, spoke on the telephone conference.  This podcast includes an additional 10 minutes from the conference that had to be cut from the broadcast due to time constraints.

Ray McGovern on Syria

Ray McGovern returned for the September 12, 2013 edition of Tell Somebody to talk about Syria.  How much confidence should we have in the Obama administration's 'high confidence' that the Assad regime was responsible for the August 21 chemical weapons attack in Syria?  What about claims by President Obama and Secretary Kerry about Iran's possible nuclear weapons ambitions?  Why did Ray tear a page out of the pocket-size copy of the U.S. Constitution given to him by Dennis Kucinich?
