First it was the Occupy Lincoln participants urging the City Council to get on the bandwagon for a U.S. constitutional amendment that would allow government to have some control over campaign donations and spending.
Code words were: “Corporations aren’t people. Money isn’t speech.”
This week, a leader of a national coalition, Move to Amend, brought a similar message to the council.
Sitting quietly in the audience Monday was Jack Gould, a volunteer with Nebraska Common Cause.
Gould understands the local and state political process.
