01 Dec The Scheme: How The Right Wing Used Dark Money to Capture the Supreme Court with author Senator Sheldon Whitehouse
December 1, 2022, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse will discuss his new book, THE SCHEME, which methodically pulls back the curtain on a decades-long, behind-the-scenes manipulation of our political and judicial systems to capture our courts—especially the Supreme Court—as a way to control our democracy. Packed with personal insights and inside stories from Whitehouse’s fifteen years in the U.S. Senate, it is at once an alarm that cannot be ignored and a pressing call for corrective action.
