Linda McMahon on Government Reform

 


2000: Initiated non-partisan voter-registration campaign

Linda initiated WWE's non-partisan voter-registration campaign, "SmackDown! Your Vote", in August 2000. The campaign specifically targeted the 18-to-30 year-old voter demographic, making use of online marketing, public service announcements, and youth voting partnerships. The campaign, which registered 150,000 new voters during the 2000 election, was started in coalition with MTV's Choose or Lose. In 2008, SmackDown! Your Vote registered many voters online, often in affiliation with Rock The Vote.

No PAC money; small donations only

Q: What is Dodd's biggest flaw?

A: I think Dodd's been in office now for a long time.

Q: Has he gotten too comfortable?

A: The issues he's addressed with Countrywide and AIG, those issues where he's lost trust with [the people]. He takes money fro the special interests that he's really regulating.

Q: It's a conflict?

A: It's a conflict there. Running a public company, one of the things that you learn is "perception of reality." You have to make sure the actions you are taking in a public company are perceived the way you intend them. You have to be really careful and make sure your actions are transparent, that your negotiations are straightforward. If you're in government your responsibility is to the people who've elected you then you have to maintain that transparency. I'm not taking any special interest money. I'm funding my own campaign. I'm not taking any money from PACs. I'm accepting up to $100 from individuals because there are people that like to invest.
