Public Advocate Bill de Blasio appeared on MSNBC yesterday to talk about his campaign to force companies to disclose which politicians they are giving money to.
“We are saying the American people have a right to who’s doing it,” he told host Cenk Uygur. “We deserve to know what’s going on.”
De Blasio has made the Citizen’s United decision his personal cause of his first year as public advocate, and it has given him much positive media exposure, including in Mother Jones, The Nation, and most recently, Newsweek. Not bad for a guy who holds an office whose main responsibility involves getting people to rally around a cause.
