Ever wonder how much free speech really costs? Dr. Chapman Rackaway, assistant professor of political science at Fort Hays State University, will explain in a presentation titled "Free Speech is Expensive" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25, in the Hays Public Library Gallery.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
Rackaway will talk about finance reform in elections and will explain how the problem of money in politics has become much worse as a result of campaign reform.
The presentation is sponsored by the FHSU Philosophy Department, which usually has one or two presentations per semester in the department's Civil Discussions on Controversial Issues series. The presentations last about 45 minutes with 45-minute discussions afterwards.
