CNA has sponsored Prop. 89, the Clean Money Initiative, as an antidote to the current corrupt campaign finance system. Based on election laws already succeeding in Arizona, Maine, and Connecticut, Prop. 89, the California Clean Money and Fair Elections Act, sets tougher limits on contributions from corporations, unions and private individuals and establishes provides public financing for candidates who reject private money. It also closes current campaign finance loopholes and bars contributions to candidates by professional lobbyists and state contractors. It contains tough penalties for candidates who break the law, including jail time and removal from office.

Produced by Robert Greenwald, this is a must see.
