On Compromised Truth, Campaign Finance, Leadership and Much More
It is an honor to launch my Ethics & Truth stream with my discussion with US Senator Russell Feingold on ethics, truth and more. Whatever one’s politics, Senator Feingold offers a globally-minded perspective on some of today’s most challenging ethical questions—and on my personal mantra that integrating ethics into our decision-making tethers us to our humanity.
The official bio from his website LegitAction is as follows [link]:
“Russ Feingold is known for his independence, his honesty and his work ethic. He has always stood up for the middle class families, students and workers who need economic opportunity, often drawing the ire of wealthy special interests and lobbyists.
A lifetime Wisconsin resident, Feingold represented Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate from 1993 to 2011, earning a reputation for doing what’s right, not what’s politically convenient. Whether it was opposing the war in Iraq, serving as an early voice for fiscal responsibility, or being the only senator to oppose the Patriot Act, Feingold has shown that you can make a difference if you’re willing to speak truth to power.
As one of the namesakes of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, Feingold established himself as a bipartisan voice and an accomplished legislator who is leading the fight against runaway special interest money in American elections.”
