Washington's Other Scandal

Washington's Other Scandal
Oct. 06, 1998
60 minutes

The 1996 presidential campaign was the most expensive in history and the most corrupt since Richard Nixons 1974 re-election. Janet Reno has now renewed deliberations over the appointment of an independent prosecutor to examine the campaigns financial abuses, and the McCain/Feingold reform legislation is being debated in the Senate. In a special report with Bill Moyers, FRONTLINE goes behind the headlines to explore how both Democrats and Republicans conspired to evade the laws which limit the amount of money allowed to flow into election campaigns.

Producer(s): Sherry Jones

Awards: George Foster Peabody Award (1998)
