Laura and Crystal bring you the money-in-politics news of the week, starting with the women's strike and why Every Voice is participating; how and why the House Judiciary Committee killed a resolution of inquiry into Trump's foreign business dealings; how Arizona is trying to make it harder for people to be heard at the ballot; and finally some great news out of Oregon as they introduce small donor elections.
