In U.S. Politics, Money Talks

By Mary Carlson, Letter to the Editor

Chalmers Johnson's article, "My Congressman Stands for Money, Not for Me" (Opinion, Sept. 26), is yet another reason why we must have publicly financed political campaigns. Otherwise, our elected representatives will never represent their constituents as a whole, but only those who pay their way. The public needs to buy its elected officials instead of big money/special interests buying them.
