RICHARD O. JACOBS ON HIS BOOK DEMOCRACY OF DOLLARS

We don’t vote for federal judges; they’re appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

However, public influence has undeniably had a dramatic effect on the Court, it is the wealthy and powerful who have always benefitted from our legal system.

Attorney Richard Jacobs’s new book Democracy of Dollars: Where Natural and Constitutional Rights Go To the Highest Bidder looks at the ways direct democracy has been hijacked by big money and partisan politics.

Join us for a look at how to transform America into an actual representative democracy in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
