You're Never Gonna Believe Who Said This!

This quote appeared in the August 2003 issue of the UCLA Law School Magazine:

"Disclosure of contributions is the most effective way to mitigate the potential corrupting influence of money in politics. The Campaign Disclosure Project embodies the timeless idea of Justice Louis Brandeis — 'Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant' — because it promotes the importance of instantaneous disclosure of campaign contributions via the Internet."

Great quote and absolutely true, right. Too bad Sean Treglia didn't practice what he preached to the rest of us when it came to disclosing his six-year strategy to fund "the appearance of a mass movement afoot" to support for campaign finance reform.

Thanks to Win Myers at Project-Democracy for posting this gem.
