"Pay 2 Play: Democracy's High Stakes"

Weight: 
0

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a public screening of the political documentary “Pay 2 Play,” Wednesday April 15 at 5:00 p.m. in the Cleveland-Marshall Moot Court Room. The event is free and open to the public.

“Pay 2 Play” follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury -- through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Among the central focuses of the film is Ohio’s importance to the national political spectrum – and the political corruption that has resulted. 

"There's nothing more important to our economy and our democracy than getting big money out of politics. Watch this film and learn why," said Robert B. Reich, former U.S. Secretary of Labor.

The documentary features a cast of over 25 legal, political and media experts including Lawrence Lessig, the director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University and the Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. Lessig will speak at Cleveland-Marshall Friday, April 17 at 5 p.m. on “How Money (in politics) Matters.”
