Larry Wilmore Debates Campaign Finance, Money in Politics

The Nightly Show host asks panel, "Who controls the message?"

Last night'e episode of The Nightly Show was all about dark money, "and no, I'm not talking about my '80s rap group," declared host Larry Wilmore. Rather, the episode focused on who controls the message in Washington, and whether money should be able to buy power.
After an opening monologue in which he pondered a boycott against the Koch Brothers, the Republicans who have spent close to a billion dollars to advance the conservative agenda (he dropped the idea upon realizing that Koch owns pretty much every brand of toilet paper), Wilmore welcomed a lively panel of guests to debate the issue.
Check out what former New York gubernatorial candidate Zephyr Teachout, comedians Hari Kondabolu and Ted Alexandro and conservative pundit David Webb have to say on the issue.
