David Daley, editor in chief of Salon and the Digital Media Fellow for the Wilson Center for Humanities and the Arts and the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia, discusses his book, Ratf**ked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy. Daley argues that after the 2008 presidential election, Republican operatives including Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie and Chris Jankowski devised a plan to flood state races dark money made possible by Citizens United in an effort to reshape state legislatures in what was called the “REDMAP program.”
