The Brennan Center for Justice, NYU DC, and The John Brademas Center hosted an afternoon discussion as we gear up for the midterm elections. Young Mie Kim, Professor, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Alicia Bannon, Deputy Director for Program Management, Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, Michelle Ye Hee Lee, Reporter, National Political Enterprise and Accountability Team, The Washington Post, Anna Massoglia, Researcher, Center for Responsive Politics, and Ian Vandewalker, Senior Counsel, Democracy Program, Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, led the dialogue.

Do we know what is happening with money in politics this year? How much foreign spending is coming through dark money channels? In terms of online political ads, do we know how much is coming from unknown sources? How are super PACS and dark money groups shifting the balance of power with official political party fundraising operations? And are these trends filtering down to federal and state judicial elections?

*1.5 credits of NY CLE were available in the areas of Professional Practice category. The credit was both transitional and non-transitional and appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys.
