The Corrupting Influence Of Corporate Lobbyists & How To Fix It! (Interview With AFP-TN’s Tori Venable)
We recently ran a story - https://bit.ly/3fhvatr - revealing that left-leaning corporations spend roughly $450,000 per legislator on lobbyists who are forever in the ears of our representatives and most often, these lobbyists are not working in the best interest of Tennessee taxpayers. Even our own government uses lobbyists to fight against legislation that the majority of Tennesseans would like to see passed.
Tori Venable, Tennessee Director of Americans for Prosperity joins me today to talk about the connection between political action committees, or PACs, and the lobbyists who spend their entire working careers in the state capitol.
More importantly, she talks about what regular Tennessee citizens can do to become citizen lobbyists and potentially wield the same or even more power than the corporate-funded left-leaning lobbyists and positively influence legislators in the Volunteer State.
