Sam Fedele is a retired engineering manager who has concluded that the root cause problem underlying virtually every significant issue in modern America is the impact of big money on our electoral process. Sam has been involved in efforts to push back against big money special interests since 2006, formally through the Metro Justice of Rochester/ Citizen Action of NY "clean elections" campaign, informally via editorials and blogs, and has recently kicked off a coordinated local effort to raise awareness of the serious implications of the Supreme Court's decision in the case of Citizens United v. the Federal Election. The "Seditious Sitizen" YouTube channel has been created to share insights on this issue, lay out the long term solution, and recommend concrete ways to get involved in its implementation.
