With campaign spending in this election cycle breaking all previous records, there’s some sporadic attention in the corporate media on the influence of campaign donations to legislative and executive decisions. But this month’s issue of Mother Jones magazine goes further than most of the press have been willing to go. It traces exactly what Republicans and Democrats are willing to do for their sponsors.
