Curvatosi
Austin, TX
A film about government corruption and how it causes our system to work against us. I'm a former business lobbyist. I've participated in this legalized corruption. I've represented corporate interest before state and federal officials. I get angry when I hear an elected official scoff at the notion his/her vote can be bought. Of course they can be bought-it happens daily and often their votes are shopped around to the highest bidder. If this were not the case, corporate America would no longer be investing in them.
