Peter Schweizer talked about his book, Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets, in which he argues that, contrary to popular belief, big money interests do not control politicians. He said that it’s the politicians who extort money from corporations and other wealthy groups, noting that members of Congress often introduce legislation for no other reason than to get donations from groups that will be impacted by it. Mr. Schweizer spoke at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California. close
