We live in a system of legalized bribery. That’s why Dylan Ratigan and Jimmy Williams started GetMoneyOut.org. Today, they’re merging Get Money Out into a group called United Republic, who noticed the same thing we all did – our government is bought.
Joining Jimmy Williams are the two principals of United Republic: Nick Penniman and Josh Silver. I’ve known Nick for years. He and I first met when he was running an investigative journalism unit for the Huffington Post, exposing the powers behind the financial crisis. Josh, who I’ve recently gotten to know and like, is the former founder and CEO of Free Press, the nation’s largest media reform group.
United Republic is forging a bigger, bolder movement to end our current, corrupt way of financing politics in this country. Get Money Out will be their first campaign. And they have already forged an alliance with Lawrence Lessig’s Rootstrikers. Countless other organizations, from the People for the American Way to the Committee for Economic Development, to the Goo Goo Dolls, are with us.
