EP 101: Alexandra Pelosi Exposes the World of Political Mega-Donors
My guest today is Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi who has a new film called MEET THE DONORS on HBO. Today she’ll talk about the Top 100 people who fund US political campaigns including the Koch Bros and George Soros, and she’ll reveal why one Soros family member is working to get money OUT of our politics. We’ll discuss what these mega-donors want from politicians, the perils of this nuclear arms race to buy political influence, Citizens United, and possible solutions to campaign finance reform. Plus I ask Alexandra what her mom Nancy Pelosi had to say about her efforts to shut down the gravy train for Washington politicians.
