AZAN March Happy Hour

"Political advertising isn’t free speech, it’s paid speech"

Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Meet Derek Cressman at our March Happy Hour with a book discussion and signing of his new book When Money Talk$.

Derek has worked professionally to strengthen #campaignfinance laws since 1995 as California's Director of the State PIRG's Democracy Program and Vice President for States with #CommonCause. He ran for California Secretary of State in the June 2014 primary.

When Money Talk$ offers the reader an entirely new perspective of money in politics.

New thinking: Cressman argues political advertising isn’t free speech, it’s paid speech and so shouldn't be subject to the same protections.

New tactics: Describes both what a constitutional amendment to limit money in politics should say, and an overlooked tactic voters can use to get it passed.When Money Talks – The High Price of “Free” Speech and the Selling of Democracy
