Elections: Money - with Trevor Potter
This event is the third of a four-part series on the 2012 presidential election, co-sponsored by the Starr Center and the Goldstein Program in Public Affairs. Trevor Potter, a former Chairman of the Federal Election Commission, has been described by the American Bar Association Journal as “hands-down one of the top lawyers in the country on the delicate intersection of politics, law and money.” He served as General Counsel to John McCain’s 2000 and 2008 presidential campaigns, and is the founding president and general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, a Washington-based nonprofit that focuses on campaign finance issues. Potter makes regular appearances on “The Colbert Report,” where he advises Stephen Colbert on campaign finance issues and helped set up Colbert’s Super PAC, “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow.
