Coverage of Art Pope Exposé on Rachel Maddow Show

“Millionaire helps tip North Carolina electoral playing field”

On her October 4 show, Rachel Maddow interviewed Jane Mayer, author of an explosive exposé about North Carolina millionaire Art Pope’s one-man election-buying machine published this week in the New Yorker magazine. Before the interview, Maddow explained how Art Pope’s efforts are in response to the 2008 election when Obama / Biden carried North Carolina by just over 14,000 votes and what Republicans are doing now to make sure that is not repeated in 2012.
