Gore Says Internet Will Reduce Influence of Money in Politics

Al Gore said the Internet would eventually lessen the role of money in politics, Tech Crunch reports.

Said Gore: "Over time, the rise of the Internet will inexorably diminish the role of money in politics, which is driven today in significant measure by the need on the part of politicians to amass these huge war chests primarily for buying 30-second television advertisements."

He added: "And as the Internet becomes more prominent and eventually the central way in which we communicate, it does bring the promise of re-empowering individuals to play their roles as citizens and to revitalize representative democracy."
