When Hillary told Russ Feingold his campaign finance reform legislation was a fantasy

Clinton, Feingold have shouting match over campaign finance reform

By FREDERIC J. FROMMER / Associated Press Writer Jul 19, 2002

WASHINGTON -- Sens. Russ Feingold and Hillary Clinton got into in a heated argument over the impact of Feingold's campaign finance reform legislation on Senate Democrats, Feingold said Friday.

"'You're not living in the real world,"' Clinton screamed at him, according to Feingold, D-Wis., the party's leading backer of the McCain-Feingold law....

At issue was the law's ban on soft money -- large, unregulated donations to parties from corporations, unions and wealthy people. Feingold said Clinton was worried the ban would open Democrats to legal liability because of what she considered the vagueness of the law.

Feingold said a "core group" of five or six Democrats -- including Clinton, D-N.Y. -- was trying to find ways to get around the ban.

"It was a troubling display for a party that claims to be for trying to clean up the system," Feingold said.

...

Feingold said Clinton apologized to him on the Senate floor later in the day....

But he said he will fight anyone who tries to keep the current system -- "even those who vote for it and then try to undercut it."

1. McCain-Feingold passed in 2002; Hillary's been working to keep big money in

our politics a long time now.

2. Unreal. Yet she claims she'll fight like anything to undo Citizens United.

Some time after 2020, no doubt.
