Is money corrupting our elected leaders, putting special interests ahead of the common good? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the influence of money in politics with Harvard Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig, an advocate for drastic campaign finance reform. Former Federal Election Commission Chairman Brad Smith, however, argues that the money doesn't corrupt and that limiting campaign cash threatens free speech. We'll speak freely on the issue, Tuesday at 9 on 90.3.
