Washington's Other Scandal
A Frontline Investigation with Bill Moyers.

BILL MOYERS: In six states, ads produced by the Washington campaign team and "sponsored" by the DNC go on the air.

BILL MOYERS: He can take public money and agree to the limits on spending by his campaign, and at the same time raise tens of millions of dollars in private money for the advertising blitz and spend it through the DNC.
