I SWEAR Politics Is Messier Than My Minivan

by | Read by Katie Porter

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Katie Porter, representative from California, presents her memoir, which begins with her Iowa childhood and takes listeners through her 2018 election and subsequent work in Congress. Porter's Midwestern accent aligns with her straightforward approaches to consumer protection, anti-corruption, and corporate accountability. Her earnest and even presentation reflects her sincerity and seriousness as a congresswoman, a position she juggles with her role as a single mom of three who worries about paying the bills. Listeners will be engaged by Porter's humor and wit--she frequently draws comparisons between her work and the skills needed for raising children. Her clarity and candor in sharing personal experiences are heartwarming and heartbreaking all at once. Those who seek an antidote to condoned malfeasance will particularly enjoy this audiobook.
