Description

Follow the Money is a harrowing behind-the-scenes account of how a cabal of powerful, tightly connected Texas Republicans have quietly hijacked American politics for their own personal gain. It tells the story of how the Texas political system came to be hijacked by a sophisticated, well-funded group of conservative Republicans who, once they were able to elevate George W. Bush to president, then went about applying their hardball, high-dollar politicking to Washington, D.C. This book tells who did it, how they did it, and what they did. In Follow the Money, John Anderson explains what has happened in such diverse yet Texas-connected realms as tort reform, labor policy, energy policy, congressional redistricting schemes, Washington lobby practices, tax law changes, the Supreme Court, the Department of Justice, and many more that affect the future of this country.

Professional reviews

"Dick Hill is an excellent choice to steer the listener through this account of politicians and their hangers-on whose influence spread from Texas to Washington. John Anderson, longtime observer of Texas politics, recounts a riveting chronicle of the scheming and scandals of what he dubs the "DeLay Group." Dick Hill's crisp reporting leads the listener along the convoluted trails laid down by Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, and company as they wound their way through local and national politics. These paths and players went all the way to Karl Rove, Harriet Miers, Alberto Gonzales, and George W. Bush. Hill presents the text with a straightforward delivery that catches the author's nuance and emphasis, irony and outrage. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
