The issue of corporate political giving is a fairly persistent topic in campaign finance these days, but it took on renewed interest in the wake of the insurrection on Capitol Hill on January 6th. In the aftermath, corporations, ranging from Airbnb to Walmart, announced that they would be making changes to the way they dolled out their political cash.  Bruce Freed is the president and co-founder of the Center for Political Accountability, a nonprofit advocacy organization that is leading the way when it comes to achieving corporate political disclosure and accountability. Bruce joins the Money in Politics podcast to help put these recent events in their proper context, as well as shed light on the lasting ramifications, if any, of corporate America's political spending hiatus.
