In 'The Political Racket', Martin L. Gross puts American politicians under a microscope for the first time and finds them sadly lacking. His Bill of Indictment against our politicians includes the following - they lie so often that they seem pathological - yet they continue to fool the voters; they raise too much money, and they trade favors with lobbyists and special interests to get that money; a streak of moral turpitude too often runs through the political class; their television ads are often masterpieces of lies and distortions; their two-party system is set up to thwart independents and third parties; they refuse to back term limits despite overwhelming public support for citizen-politicians; they have become part of the celebrity culture and too often pander to the media; they take advantage of weak conflict-of-interest laws to line their own pockets. In this investigation, Gross exposes the secret world of American politicians and outlines a plan to totally reform the system and replace the political class with dedicated citizens.
