Breaking Down “The Scheme” with Author Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

Fri December 09, 11:00 am

Philadelphia, PA

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse is known for his progressive politics and a vocal champion for climate change policy in government. He has been known to reach across the aisle to work with folks like James Inhofe on grants for small manufacturers on workforce training; or Roger Wicker on legislation that clamps down on laundering money through U.S. financial system. Following his book Captured on corporate capture of regulatory and government agencies, and his years of experience as a prosecutor, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse here turns his attention to the right-wing scheme to capture the courts, and how it influenced the Trump administration’s appointment of over 230 “business-friendly” judges, including the last three justices of the United States Supreme Court. This will be a panel discussion on dark money in politics with Sen. Whitehouse, Dr. Michael Mann, and Dr. Joseph Francisco with moderation by Dr. Kathleen D. Morrison. A book signing with Sheldon Whitehouse will follow the panel discussion and books will be available for purchase on site.
