about

Conventional wisdom holds that Washington is broken because outside special interests bribe politicians. The reverse is true: politicians have developed a new set of brass-knuckle legislative tactics designed to extort wealthy industries and donors into forking over big donations - cash that lawmakers often funnel into the pockets of their friends and family. Until now, Washington's extortion scheme has gone unreported. Yet thanks to an extraordinary effort by Peter Schweizer and the investigative staff of the Government Accountability Institute, we now know the racketeering methods and the players who profit from them. Exhaustively researched and compellingly told, Extortion names names as it pulls back the curtain to reveal the shocking new racket ruling Washington.
Best-selling author of Throw Them All Out,  PETER SCHWEIZER is   president of the Government Accountability Institute and a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. He has written for the New York Times, the  Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere.
