Teaching for a Change’s Busboys & Poets Bookstore welcomes Greg Palast to speak about Billionaires and Ballot Bandits on Monday, October 22nd at 6:30pm.
Billionaires & Ballot Bandits names the filthy-rich sugar-daddies who are super-funding the Super-PACs of both parties—billionaires with nicknames like “The Ice Man,” “The Vulture” and, of course, The Brothers Koch. Told with Palast’s no-holds-barred, reporter-on-the-beat style, the facts as he lays them out are staggering. What emerges in B&BB is the never-before-told-story of the epic battle being fought behind the scenes between the old money banking sector that still supports Obama, and the new hedge fund billionaires like Paul Singer who not only support Romney but also are among his key economic advisors.

Willamette Week put Greg Palast in the hot seat last week, asking him questions about his newest book Billionaires and Ballot Bandits, protecting American voters’ rights, problems with the media, and even Harry Potter.
“ WW: You’ve said, “I’m a reporter. It’s not my job to preserve Democrats.” Yet almost all of your stories champion traditionally liberal causes.
Greg Palast: I didn’t say I wasn’t progressive. That certainly wouldn’t make me a Democrat. I’m completely driven by anger and resentment toward the rich. I f*****’ hate ’em. I hate these people with my heart and soul. I hate the fact they go after the defenseless and the voiceless. At this moment in history, the Republicans are more sophisticated; that’s why they’ve been rented out by billionaires to do their work. If I thought my job was to elect schmucks like Al Gore, I would jump off a building. He should have been inaugurated, even though he didn’t think so.”
