On Democracy in America, Greg talks to Gordon about transparency and accountability in government. Gordon explains why New Jersey got high marks just before Gov. Christie’s bridge scandal. Greg asks why special interests are sending more money to Montana, of all places. Is all this outside money shifting politics to the left or the right? Is the Supreme Court making it harder to report on campaign finance? They close by considering how many races are determined by outside money.
