Episode Summary

EDIT
Saving Elections from Politics
AIRED:
Having the government pay for political campaigns remains unpopular among liberal, conservative, and independent voters. Voters have rejected or repealed government-funded campaigns in Oregon, California, Alaska, Massachusetts, and Missouri. Professor Bradley A. Smith argues it is dangerous to give government control over electoral speech, because the tendency to use such control for partisan purposes is a constant temptation. He recommends a doctrine of “separation of campaign and state” similar to the separation of church and state or of civilian and military authority.moreless
