The Best Representation (Corporate) Money Can Buy

Thanks to Rachel D for this Salon article, which details the horrifying intrusion of corporate dollars into a school board race in Denver.

Here in Dryden, the dollars are harder to trace, but certainly Anschutz Gas & Oil Exploration has a vested interest in the town board outcome and has made that clear both in the timing of their lawsuit and in their attorney's comments on the radio.

One of the many things the OWS protesters are protesting is the influence of corporate monies on politics. In 2011, the influence extends into local races in towns of 13,500. Your town could be next.
