Richard Painter
Law School, University of Minnesota
will speak on
Taxation only with Representation:  the Conservative Conscience and Campaign Finance Reform

Professor Painter will argue that political conservatives should support reform of our corrupt system of campaign finance.  A principal concern is the ability of foreign governments, sovereign wealth funds, corporations, and other groups to influence our political system and undermine our national security.  Professor Painter will also propose a solution that will bring more small donors into our campaign finance system to make candidates less
dependent upon large donors.
