Democracy Corner: Mr. Schneider Comes to Washington
Jon Schneider was tired of the role of money in the political process and wanted to do something about it. So he quit his job as a producer in Hollywood and set out to make a documentary. A few years later, his film, Mr. Schneider Goes to Washington, takes on special interests and highlights how money really does rule in Washington, DC.
“I’ve been frustrated with what goes on in Washington for a while. I’ve talked about getting more involved -- I just never got involved,” he said. “It was time to stop talking and start doing.”
Jon is currently putting together a campus tour of the film and is looking for other venues for spreading the word on his issue. See some clips from the movie and sign up to be his friend on MySpace.
