Russ Feingold: Politics for the People

Filmed in 2010: Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin was the sole vote against the PATRIOT Act–that you probably know. But he’s also been willing to stand up against his own party, voting against Tim Geithner’s confirmation and more recently, against the financial reform bill that passed, saying it would do more harm than good. Laura caught up with Senator Feingold last weekend at Fighting Bob Fest in Wisconsin, and discussed the Citizens United case and corporate influence on politics, voting on principle, and why he’s willing to stand up to Democrats.
