Stein (G): Feingold right on Obama’s “corrupt corporate politics” & role in Maldives coup

Jill SteinGreen Party presidential candidate Jill Stein praised former Senator Russ Feingold today for speaking plainly when he says that,

The President is wrong to have embraced the corrupt corporate politics of Citizens United and that’s what you’re doing when you start using and consorting with Super PACs.

Earlier this week, President Obama announced his support for unlimited spending by corporations and the very wealthy on via the formation of a Super PAC on behalf of the Obama campaign.

“Whomever Barack Obama may have once been, that man is not occupying the White House today,” said Dr. Stein, a medical doctor and advocate for health care and political reform. “If elected, I will deliver a Green New Deal that includes an end to corporate domination of our elections.” 

Jill Stein’s campaign is funded by individuals, and does not accept special interest contributions with strings attached, namely from corporations, registered lobbyists on behalf of for-profit corporations, or the executives that employ them. Dr. Stein supports public financing of elections, the constitutional amendment championed by Move to Amend, and a series of voting rights reforms called the Voter Bill of Rights. She is the clear leader in the Green Party presidential primaries, having won the Ohio, Minnesota, and Maine caucuses so far, and scored 1223 votes, or 68%, in a national online poll that also featured Roseanne Barr, Kent Mesplay, and Harley Mikkelson.

In a related statement, Dr. Stein criticized the Obama White House for undermining democracy abroad,

This week, as Obama was embracing corporate money, his State Department welcomed the military coup in the Maldives, which removed from office democratically-elected President Nasheed, one of world’s most vocal critics of climate change. Big oil is happy to see him gone. First Honduras, now the Maldives. So much for a foreign policy that promotes democracy and human rights.
