Appearing on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s The Last Word, The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested that money in politics is discriminatory toward African-Americans and has belittled their votes along with those of every American “in an age of impunity.”

When first asked by host Lawrence O’Donnell for her thoughts about Jeb Bush’s strategy of fundraising for his super PAC, vanden Heuvel ruled that “[i]t’s a disgrace” and further brings into question whether or not the U.S. is “a government of, by, and for the people or are one of these oligarchical countries which we issue human rights reports around.”
