The Foxes Taking Over the Hen House

Donald Trump’s ally David Bossie has just won a four year seat on the Republican National Committee. Even though Trump is not yet the official nominee, his status as the presumptive nominee already gives him sway in the Republican party. So even if he loses the general election, he will influence our politics.

Why is this interesting? Because David Bossie is the CEO of Citizens United, the group that won the lawsuit that opened up the floodgates of money considerably wider in our elections. So people who believe that Trump would reduce the power of special interests in our politics seem to have been sadly misled.
