Al Gore: “Our democracy has been hacked." by big money...

The man who turned a political career and a questionable hypothesis into a hundred million dollar fortune is complaining about money in politics...
CHICAGO — You think Al Gore is upset about global warming? You ought to hear him on American politics.
“The American political system is an utter catastrophe,” he said. “Our democracy has been hacked. The country is utterly and completely paralyzed. Hog-tied. And on a measure that will mean countless deaths in the future.”
“Why?” Gore asked. “The influence of money. The average member of the House and Senate has to spend five hours per day begging rich people for money. Begging rich interests for money!”
