InfluenceWatch Podcast #141: Big Money Politics


As appellate Judge Amy Coney Barrett testified in her Supreme Court nomination hearing, Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, and Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, traded barbs about “dark money,” with Whitehouse alleging a convoluted conservative conspiracy worthy of only the finest tinfoil hats and Cruz calmly educating observers about “Arabella Advisors,” a firm tied to a large network of liberal dark money. Joining me today are two experts on Arabella’s network: My colleague Hayden Ludwig, author of “Big Money in Dark Shadows,” an expose on the network, and its follow-up report “The Shadow Over America,” and Joe Schoffstall, staff writer focusing on money and politics for the Washington Free Beacon.
