OpenSecrets.org to Conduct Live Web Chat Thursday About Record Political Spending Despite Sour Economy

WASHINGTON - Join OpenSecrets.org
for a live
Web chat
at noon Thursday as we discuss and debate -- with you
-- how money in politics is more plentiful than ever, despite an
otherwise dismal
economy.

Taking your questions live
will be Sheila Krumholz, the Center for Responsive Politics'
executive director; Dave Levinthal, the Center's communications
director and Capital
Eye
blog
editor; and Michael Beckel, the Center's
money-in-politics
reporter.

Among the topics up for
discussion: last year's record-level
federal lobbying expenditures
, how the 2010 midterm elections
will be the most
expensive midterms
ever and the effects of the recent Citizens
United v. Federal Election Commission
decision on U.S.
politics.

at noon (eastern time) Thursday to chat with
us.
