Add comment on:Go Granny D! Action to Disclose Corporate Influence in Elections
by Ruth Robertson
Corporate money influencing elections is out of sight, but concerned citizens are responding with action to demand greater transparency. "Go, Granny D", a benefit for the DISCLOSE Act and the California Clean Money Campaign, starred Barbara Bates Smith as Granny D, the 90-year-old who walked across the US for campaign finance reform. This one-woman play raised funds for the cause of election transparency on July 21 in Palo Alto. Music and commentary was provided by Jeff Sebens; the Raging Grannies opened with a ditty appropriately titled "Song of the Fat Cats".
