Peter Stone on the influence of money in this year’s campaign

For the last 20 years, journalist Peter Stone has been unraveling the complicated issues of campaign finance. He’s written for The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Atlantic, among others, and during his tenure at the National Journal he broke several stories on the Jack Abramoff scandal, and wrote a book about it: “Casino Jack and the United States of Money.” He now leads the Politics and Money team at the Center for Public Integrity, a non-partisan investigative journalism group. He’s been tracking this year’s campaign and the financing behind it. He joined Need to Know from Washington, D.C.
