I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Capital Eye Opener, March 6: Allen West Gets Into Shadow Money, and Single-Candidate

Since we are reading about Allen West in the Draper book, I thought I would share short this OpenSecrets article about his new 501(c)(3). Gives us a little look into where campaign funds go once a candidate leaves his office.

Former tea party Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) told The Hill he won't be running for office in the next election. But don't count out his new nonprofit, the Allen West Foundation.

He told The Hill he "sees his foundation engaging in races," and taking up issue advocacy on the behalf of minority and military conservatives.

On Dec. 28, West's campaign committee, Allen West for Congress, transferred $250,000 in leftover funds to the foundation, and another $250,000 to American Legacy Guardians, according to the committee's year-end report filed with the Federal Election Commission
