On December 4th, 2013 Peter Schweizer discusses his new book ‘Extortion’ with Diane Rehm during an interview on her show on NPR.
“In recent years, money from special interest groups has flooded Washington. Many say it’s the root of our political dysfunction. But maybe conventional wisdom is wrong. Perhaps the problem lies not with the buyers of influence, but with the sellers. Author Peter Schweizer charges lawmakers’ hunt for cash influences everything from how they write laws to when they vote on a bill. He says Washington politicians use leadership PACs to bankroll lavish lifestyles, and rely on a secret loophole to make loans to themselves. Diane and Schweizer discuss new revelations about the old link between money and politics.”
