No Recession in US Politics: An OpenSecrets.org Live Web Chat

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.
