Representative Castle on Campaign Finance Reform

The Honorable Michael N. Castle
It should concern every one of us that there are corporations, … labor unions, … [and other] organizations out there which are contributing to the political parties in soft money ... And if anyone believes they are doing it because they believe in good government, I would tell them to look at the underlying legislation that those groups are interested in. The bottom line is that I think we need to do something about it.
