The Loaded Chamber

Part 1 of a GritTV expose by the US Chamber of Commerce, by Harry Handbury. This big-business lobbying outfit has used the Citizens United decision and its 501 c 6 trade association status to swiftboat any candidate who tries to regulate their top funders, say the experts interviewed here.

Whether or not we see part II of this report depends on whether the filmmakers can raise enough money before Election Day. See the video website to find out more.

Take a look at USChamberWatch for more information on the US Chamber of Commerce, including facts on funding and how local chambers of commerce are publicly distancing themselves from the national group's partisan political activities.
