THE TRUTH IS, THEY'RE NOTSPENDING THIS MONEY ONLY FOR

THE WHITE HOUSE.

GROUPS WHO DENY CLIMATECHANGE AND ACTIVELY TRY TO

DELAY POLICIES ANDREGULATIONS AIMED AT

STOPPING GLOBAL WARMING.

>> Larry: OF COURSETHERE-- RELAX, OF COURSE

THEY'RE PRO GLOBAL WARMING,THE ICE CAPS WILL MELT, THE

OCEANS WILL RISE AND ALL THELIBERALS ON THE COAST WILL

IT'S A PERFECT PLAN.

PROSPERITY, SPEND MILLIONSTRYING TO DESTROY OBAMACARE.

INTEGRAL PART OF MY EVERYDAY LIFE.

TAKING MY LYCRA.

(APPLAUSE)NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

OKAY, FINE.

I'M GLAD YOU LIKE THAT.

FINE.

SO I CAN'T BOYCOTT THEM.

AND BY THE WAY, GIVING THEMMONEY TO FURTHER YOUR

POLITICAL AGENDA ISN'T JUSTA KOCH BROTHERS THING,

HIGH ROLLERS LIKE BLOOMBERG,SOROS AND JEFFREY KATZENBERG

HAVE PUMPED MILLIONS INTO THEIRVARIOUS CAUSES.

AND WHEN THIS FUNNEL ISFUNNELED THROUGH A 501 C 4

NONE OF THIS MONEY HAS TO BE DISCLOSED TO VOTERS. IT'S

CALLED DARK MONEY. KEEPINGWITH THE WHITE PRIVILEGE

CONVENTION OF SAYING THATEVERYTHING BAD IS DARK.

THAT REMINDS ME, I GOTTA GET MYTICKET TO THIS YEAR'S WHITE

PRIVELEGE CONVENTION. GAS UP THESAUB LAKE CHAMPLAIN, HERE WE GO!

RELAX, THERE IS NO WHITEPRIVILEGE CONVENTION.

LET ME SEE IF I CAN EXPLAINHOW THIS WORKS, THIS DARK

MONEY THING.

LET'S SAY THAT ARE YOU WORTHA TRAZILLION

DOLLARS AND YOU HATE THEMOON.

AND ALL ITS GRAVITY CRAP ANDCONTROLLING TIDES BLAH BLAH

BLAH, YOU'RE AGAINST THATRIGHT.

OKAY, FIRST YOU NEED SOMEONETO BE THE FACE OF YOUR

ANTI-MOON MOVEMENT.

SO PICK SOMEBODY EVERYBODYLOVES BUT EVERYBODY ALSO

RESPECTS.

EXHIBIT A OR XZIBIT, VERYGOOD, GOOD CHOICE.

SO NOW NICE RECOGNITIONTHERE.

VERY GOOD.

NOW YOU GOT TO PIMP OUT ACAMPAIGN BUZZ, OKAY.

ALL RIGHT?

VERY NICE, START LINING THERIGHT POCKETS WITH THE DARK

MONEY.

NEXT THING YOU KNOW, BAM,SENATOR XZIBIT IS BLOWING UP

THE MOON!

IS THAT MEAN, XZIBIT, BLOWIT UP.

NOW LOOK, AS SILLY AS THISIS, DON'T LET THIS DARK

MONEY THING UPSET YOU,OKAY.

THINKING IT'S GOING TO RUIN OURPOLITICAL SYSTEM, THE TRUTH

IS THIS OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM.

ALL WE HAVE DONE OVER THEYEARS IS CHANGE WHAT WE CALL

THE MONEY, BRIBES, DARKMONEY, SLUSH FUND, SUPER PAC

BUT CAN WE STOP IT IS NOTTHE QUESTION, BECAUSE WE

CAN'T.

THE REAL QUESTION IS-- WITHJUST A FEW TITANS BANKROLLING

THE SYSTEM, DO THE REST OF USHAVE A SAY?

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: OKAY, ALL RIGHT.

WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

THANK YOU.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MONEYAND POLITICS, JOINING THE

PANEL TONIGHT, WE HAVE FORDHAMLAW PROFESSOR

AND AUTHOR OF CORRUPTIONAMERICA, ZEPHYR TEACHOUT.

HOST OF SIRIUS/XM THE DAVIDWEBB SHOW, DAVID WEBB.

THANKS, DAVID.

AND COMEDIAN HARI KONDABOLU.

AND COMEDIAN TED ALEXANDRO.

(APPLAUSE)ALL RIGHT, ZEPHYR, I WANT TO

START WITH YOU.

YOU HAD A CAMPAIGN YOU RANAGAINST ANDREW CUOMO LAST

TIME.

AND HE OUTSPENT YOU 40TIMES TO ONE.

>> A LITTLE MORE.

>> Larry: PER VOTER.

AND YOU WROTE ABOUT THISVERY ELOQUENTLY SAYING YOU

HAD SOMEONE LIKE YOU DOESN'TSTAND A CHANCE AND YOU

PROVED YOUR POINT VERYNICELY.

(LAUGHTER)>> Larry: NO, NO, NO.

NO, HAD YOU HAD YOU WOULDHAVE SCREWDED YOUR PREMISE.

BUT IS IT POSSIBLE FORSOMEONE LIKE YOU TO WIN

A BIG ELECTION.

>> IT'S ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLEBUT IT'S HARDER AND HARDER.

IT'S A TINY LITTLE SQUEAKYCHANCE.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THEELECTION SHOWED IS HOW MANY

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FORTAKING ON MONEY IN POLITICS

DIRECTLY.

I RAN AS AN ANTI-CORRUPTIONCANDIDATE.

I THINK PEOPLE ARE REALLYHUNGRY FOR THAT LIKE LET'S

REALLY TALK ABOUT WHO HASPOWER IN THIS SOCIETY, WHY

THEY HAVE POWER, AND WHETHEROR NOT IT'S DEMOCRATIC.

>> Larry: DAVID, I'M NOT GOINGTO SAY WHAT SIDE I'M ON IN THIS

DEBATE.

BUT WHY ARE YOU ON THE WRONGSIDE?

>> GIVE ME YOUR WEAK-ASSARGUMENT.

>> ALL RIGHT, MONEY IS NOTGOING TO COME OUT OF

POLITICS.

BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT THISSO-CALLED DARK MONEY, WE

STILL HAVE LAWS ABOUT-- WESTILL HAVE LAWS THAT IF THEY

BREAK THE LAWS WE CAN PUNISHTHEM FEDERALLY, THE FCC CAN

DO THIS, STATES CAN DO THIS.

>> Larry: BUT IT JUST SEEMS-- GOAHEAD.

>> WE USED TO HAVE LAWS THATIF YOU-- IF A CORPORATION

SPENT MONEY IN A CAMPAIGN,THAT WAS BREAKING THE LAW.

>> RIGHT.

>> AND THE SUPREME COURTSTRUCK THAT DOWN.

AND THAT WAS AN ANTI-BRIBERYLAW.

>> NO, IT WASN'T.

ARE YOU TALKING ABOUTCITIZENS UNITED VERSUS FCC

IN 2010 WHICH WAS RESOLVEDBY THE SUPREME COURT.

>> Larry: PEOPLE WANTED TOSHOW A HORRIBLE FILM ABOUT

HILLARY CLINTON.

>> BUT HERE'S THE THING.

WHAT IT DID WAS IT REVERSED,LET'S SAY LARRY AND I WANT

TO WALK DOWN THE STREET, WEARE TALKING TO PEOPLE ABOUT

POLITICS.

THE MINUTE WE DECIDE TOINCORPORATE AND SAY WE WILL

FORM AN ORGANIZATION TO DOTHIS, THE GOVERNMENT COMES

IN AND SAYS LARRY, YOU KNOWWHAT, YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT

IT OR YOU CAN'T USE YOURSHOW TO TALK ABOUT IT

BECAUSE THERE IS MONEY THATFUNDS THE SHOW.

>> Larry: HARI, HELP ME OUTON THIS.

TO ME, HERE IS WHERE I'MSUSPICIOUS OF KOCH BROTHERS

AND THESE TYPE OF PEOPLE.

BECAUSE THEY ARE ALWAYS FORREDUCING GOVERNMENT.

THEY'RE NOT FOR CENTRALIZEDPOWER.

YET AREN'T THEY SETTING UPTHEIR OWN OLIGARCHY BY

BEING THE ONES WITH THE

DECISIONS.

>> THE NUMBER OF DIFFERENTRICH PEOPLE THEY HAVE

WORKING TOGETHER TO CONSOLIDATETHEIR MONEY TO

TO CREATE THE SYSTEM,

IT'S REAL EVIL STUFF, IT'SALMOST CORNY.

YOU CAN'T IMAGINE IT BEINGSO OVER THE TOP.

>> Larry: LIKE AUSTIN POWERSOR SOMETHING.

>> IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT ISKIND OF IN THE OPEN TOO.

I THINK THERE IS ALWAYS LIKETHE ILLUMINATI, PEOPLE ARE

CONTROLLING-- NO, IT'S TWOWHITE DUDE, AND

THEY'RE BROTHERS. YOU CAN SEETHEM.

AND-- THEY'RE NOTUNDERGROUND.

THEY'RE NEAR PALM SPRINGS,MAN.

>> Larry: YOU ARE VERYACTIVE IN CAUSES AND STUFF.

BUT WHEN YOU ARE OUT THEREDOES IT FEEL LIKE THIS

DISCONNECT FROM PEOPLE.

IS IT TOO WONKY FOR THEM, ISIT NOT SEXY ENOUGH FOR THE

AVERAGE PERSON TO GETAROUND.

>> SEXY IS HARDLY THE WORD IWOULD USE FOR ANY OF THIS.

>> Larry: DO YOUTHINK PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN UP

IN EVEN TRYING TO FIGHT THISTYPE OF THING

>> I THINK THEY HAVE GIVENUP TO THE EXTENT THAT WHEN

WE'RE TALKING ABOUTDEMOCRACY, DEMOCRACY IS NOT

THE SAME THING FOREVERYBODY.

DEMOCRACY FOR THE KOCHBROTHERS IS A GREAT THING

WHEN YOU CAN CHANGE LAWS ANDDO WHATEVER, RUN ROUGH SHOD

OVER DEMOCRACY.

ASK THE PEOPLE OF FERGUSONHOW DEMOCRACY IS TREATING

THEM.

ASK THE PEOPLE IN DETROITHOW DEMOCRACY IS WORKING OUT

FOR THEM.

IF WE ARE THE UNITED STATESOF AMERICA, WE HAVE TO TAKE

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE INTOCONSIDERATION.

>> I'M A LITTLE CONCERNEDTHAT-- ARE WE AT A POLITICAL

MOMENT RIGHT NOW, YOU KNOW,OUR SIDES ARE SO DIVIDED

THAT MIDDLE CLASS ISDISAPPEARING.

ARE WE AT THE BEGINNING OFMAYBE A POLITICAL

REVOLUTION.

ARE DEMOCRATS ANDREPUBLICANS GOING AWAY, JUST

KOCH AND SOROS, ARE THOSEOUR POLITICAL PARTIES.

>> THAT IS ONE OF THE BIGFEARS. THAT IT JUST BECOMES A

KIND OF DEBATE BETWEEN AFEW BILLIONAIRES WHO SORT OF

HAVE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENTVIEWS BUT NOT REPRESENTATIVE

VIEWS.

THAT IS A VERY, VERY, VERYREAL FEAR.

>> RIGHT, CAUSE PEOPLE SAY,YEAH BUT LARRY, WHEN YOU GO INTHE VOTING BOOTH

YOU CAN DECIDE WHO TO VOTEFOR. BUT I DIDN'T WANT

TO VOTE FOR KALE AND TOFU, IDIDN'T WANT TO VOTE FOR THOSETWO THINGS.

>> BUT YOU DO HAVETHAT-- LOOK, I AGREE.

WHEN IT COMES IT TO MONEY, IWOULD LIKE TO REMOVE THE

DARKNESS, IF YOU WANT TOCALL IT THAT, WHAT YOU CALL

IT FROM POLITICS.

WE WANT TRANSPARENCY.

I BELIEVE IN TRANSPARENCYAND I'M WITH YOU ON A NEW

MOVEMENT.

BUT YOU DO GO INTO THATBOOTH.

NO MATTER WHAT SOMEBODYTELLS YOU, LAST TIME I

CHECKED IN THAT BOOTH, YOUGET TO CHOOSE TO GO AGAINST

THEM OR FOR THEM.

>> THE WORRY IS THAT ITDOESN'T MATTER, RIGHT,

BECAUSE IF THE KOCH BROTHERSARE GIVING THIS MUCH MONEY

TO CANDIDATES, YOU ARE NOTREALLY REPRESENTING THE

VALUES OF YOUR CONSTITUENTS.

YOU WANT TO GET RE-ELECTEDAND WILL YOU DO WHAT THE

KOCH BROTHERS TELL YOU TODO.

ONCE YOU ARE HOOKED ON KOCHTHAT'S IT, AND THERE'S NO

WAY AROUND IT.

>> DOES IT-- DOES IT MAKETHE AVERAGE VOTER SEEM

INSIGNIFICANT?

>> THERE IS A LOT OFRESEARCH ACTUALLY THAT THE

MORE, AFTER CITIZENS UNITED,MORE PEOPLE ARE DROPPING

OUT.

THEY ARE FEELING MOREINSIGNIFICANT.

BUT WHAT I HOPE IS THAT WEARE AT A MOMENT WHERE LIKE

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE TO CHANGESOME THINGS.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE TO PASSPUBLIC FINANCING OF

ELECTIONS.

SO -->> SO MAYBE-- I WOULD SAY

TOO THAT YOU KNOW, WE'RETALKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW,

IT'S FUNNY THEY CALL IT DARKMONEY BECAUSE IT'S OLD WHITE

MONEY.

BUT SECONDLY, THAT WHO EVENTHINKS ABOUT 2016 AND HOW

MUCH THEY'RE GOING TO GIVE.

I THINK MY FRIENDS AND ICOMBINED MAYBE HAVE GIVEN

$889 DOLLARS LET ALONE $889MILLION, YOU KNOW.

SO YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT WHOHAS TIME TO SIT AROUND AND

MAKE EVIL PLANS AND GETTOGETHER IN PALM SPRINGS.

>> WHO HAS A MASTER PLANOTHER THAN EVIL PEOPLE.

>> YES.

>> Larry: DOES IT GET RID OFGRASS-ROOTS CAMPAIGNING.

BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKECANDIDATES, YOU NOW HAVE TO

AUDITION, YOU KNOW.

LIKE ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE,IF YOU ARE NOT FOR CERTAIN

THINGS, YOU'RE DONE.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE A RELEVANTVERSION OF SHARK TANK,

RIGHT?

>> THE NUMBERS DON'T MATCHUP IF YOU LOOK AT THE SWING

IN THE STATE LEGISLATURESNOW.

THE COUNTRY IS GOING FOR THEMOST PART RED, REPUBLICAN,

TO WIN IN STATE LEGISLATURES.

THEY'RE RUNNING GRASS-ROOTSCAMPAIGN.

LITTLE BY LITTLE, MORE ANDMORE GRASS-ROOTS CAMPAIGNS

ARE WINING.

THOSE ARE THE NUMBERS.

WE CAN TALK ABOUT SOROSON ONE SIDE AND KOCH ON THE

OTHER.>> Larry: YOU'RE NOT CONCERNED

ABOUT PEOPLE CONTROLLING THEWHAT THE NARRATIVE IS?

>> THEY WILL CONTROLL ACERTAIN AMOUNT OF MEDIA.

THEY WILL CONTROL A CERTAINAMOUNT OF MEDIA NARRATIVE.

NOT NECESSARILY THE MEDIAITSELF.

BUT IN THE END, LOOK, FOLKSWE'RE BIG BOYS.

LET'S PUT ON OUR BIG BOYLYCRAS AND VOTE FOR WHAT WE

BELIEVE IN.

>> I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR,THERE IS A TAX, A REAL TAX

ON SUPPORTING THE MINIMUMWAGE.

THAT MAY BE LIKE A MILLIONDOLLARS OF ATTACKS THAT ARE

COMING AFTER YOU IF YOU JUSTCOME OUT THERE AND SAY YOU

SUPPORT THE MINIMUM WAGEBECAUSE THE KOCH BROTHERS

AS YOU SAID, WANT TO GETRID OF THE CONCEPT.

AND SO THINK WHAT THAT DOESTO CANDIDATES.

IT MAKES THEM SCARED.

IT MAKES THEM SCARED ABOUTTALKING ABOUT REAL ISSUES.

AND I ACTUALLY THINK ONE OFTHE REAL COSTS --

>> YOU TALKED ABOUT REALISSUES IN YOUR CAMPAIGN.

YOU HAD THE SUPPORT OF A LOTOF GOOD PARTIES ON YOUR

SIDE.

>> Larry: .

>> I THINK ALSO LIKE WE'RETALKING ABOUT THIS WORD

GRASS ROOTS IN KIND OF AHIGH FALUTIN WAY IT IS

NOT SCOTT WALKER TAKINGMONEY FROM THE KOCH AND

RUNNING THE CAMPAIGN IT ISPEOPLE IN THE STREETS IN

FERGUSON, IN NEW YORK.

GRASS ROOTS IS OCCUPY WALLSTREET.

GRASS ROOTS IS PEOPLEWITHOUT A VOICE, YOU KNOW,

LIKE DR. MARTIN LUTHER KINGSAID, PROTESTORS IS THE

VOICE OF THE VOICELESS.

THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOVOICE.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT, HERE'S THETHING --

>> THAT'S GRASS ROOTS.

>> BUT I WILL TELL YOU WHAT,GRASS ROOTS WAS STARTED BY

A SOROS ORGANIZATION WITH $7MILLION-- I WAS IN FERGUSON,

BY THE WAY.

YOU KNOW THAT, LARRY.

I WAS DOWN THERE IN AUGUSTAND I WAS DOWN THERE WHEN

THE VERDICT CAME DOWN FORANOTHER NINE, TEN DAYS.

SO I KNOW WHAT IS OUT THEREOF.

I'M OUT IN THE STREETS MAN.

I'M DOWN THERE WITH YOU ONPRINCIPLES.

SO THERE ARE BOTH SIDES TOTHINGS WE NEED TO FIX.

BUT WE HAVE TO GET IT RIGHT.

THERE IS A LOT OF TOPDOWN,ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA.

THAT AIN'T GRASS ROOTS.

THAT WAS FUNDED OUT OF THEOBAMA CAMPAIGN.

BOTH SIDES ARE DOING THIS.

>> THERE IS A TOTAL FALSEEQUIVALENCY.

THE SUN AND MOON AREN'T THESAME THING EVEN THOUGH THEY

ARE BOTH ROUND.

LIKE WHEN YOU SEE, YOU KNOW,30 OR 300 PEOPLE CONTROLLING

OR TRYING TO CONTROL POLICYIN THE COUNTRY, THAT IS

TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN THEBEST PARTS OF AMERICA.

>> SO THE DEMOCRATS ARECOMPLETELY FREE OF ALL BIG

MONEY.

>> IT'S NOT THAT -->> I DIDN'T THINK SO.

>> Larry: I WILL JUST SAYTHIS AT THE END OF THE DAY

IT SEEMS LIKE WE WILL NEVERHAVE ANY KIND OF MR. SMITH

GOES TO WASHINGTON WHO CANEVER BE IN POLITICS ANYMORE,

YOU KNOW.

THOSE DAYS -->> DON'T GIVE UP.

DON'T GIVE UP.

>> OKAY, MRS. SMITH, YOU'RERIGHT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERYMUCH.

OKAY.

IT'S TIME TO GET REAL ON APERSONAL LEVEL.

LET'S TAKE IT 100.

I'M GOING TO ASK EACH OF YOUDAYS A QUESTION, IF THE

AUDIENCE THINKS THEY'REKEEPING IT 100 THEY WILL CLAP.

AND IF NOT-- THAT'S ALL RIGHT,THEY GOT IT, OKAY.
