Summary
In this edition of Moyers Company, former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter dissects the spending on the most expensive election in American history. Many voices are claiming that money didn't matter, and that Citizens United wasn't a factor, but Potter disagrees. "Super PACs just upped the ante," he tells Bill. "If you're a senator and you have just been elected, or heaven forbid you're up in two years, you're thinking 'I don't have time to worry about deficit reduction and the fiscal cliff. I have to raise tens of thousands of dollars every day to have enough money to compete with these new super PACs... And that means I need to be nice to a lot of billionaires who often want something from me in order to find the funding for my campaign.'
