Clean elections on PBS/NOW


PBS Now is running a major piece Friday night on clean elections around the nation with a significant portion on California featuring CNA.

You can watch a preview on youtube through this link. Please circulate and encourage people to watch. This Friday night, PBS’s acclaimed national news magazine NOW will air a special on California's Proposition 89 and the national movement for clean elections. PBS bills the show as "A special hour-long investigation into the 'Clean Election' movement, a fight to keep American elections free and fair across the country." Be sure to watch the show and let others know about it. Find out when the program will run on your local PBS station here.

In announcing the upcoming show, titled "Can Clean Elections Save Our Democracy?" PBS notes that: "The run-up to this year's midterm election smells of scandal and corruption. From the $90,000 found in Rep. Jefferson's freezer to the scandal-tied resignation and indictment of Rep. Tom Delay, a question emerges: Can anyone stop the influence of Big Money on political campaigns?" "Votes for Sale?" will spotlight the so-called Clean Elections movement. It may not only help clean up politics, but also open the door for more average Americans to run for office and win.
