Beschreibung

Schweizer names guilty parties . . . He exposes powerful figures in politics, law firms, and corporations. ForbesWashington is no longer about lawmaking, its about moneymakingConventional wisdom holds that Washington is broken because outside special interests bribe politicians. The reverse is true: politicians have developed a new set of brass-knuckle legislative tactics designed to extort wealthy industries and donors into forking over big donations cash that lawmakers often funnel into the pockets of their friends and family.Inside this best-selling bombshell of a book, Schweizer reveals the exorbitant secret fees each political party charges politicians for top committee assignments; how fourteen members of Congress bagged hundreds of thousands of dollars using a little-known self-loan loophole; how politicians use PACs to bankroll lavish lifestyles; and much more. Washingtons extortion racket has gone unreported until now.

Best-selling author of Throw Them All Out, PETER SCHWEIZER is president of the Government Accountability Institute and a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. He has written for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere.
