The influence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on the U.S. elections is very "dangerous" and is "not transparent" at all, says a member of CODEPINK.


In a phone interview with Press TV's U.S. Desk on Wednesday, Ridgely Fuller said, "I think AIPAC for a long time has played a very significant role both in the national as well as in the state elections.”


Fuller also said that "it's pretty well-known" that AIPAC is one of "the largest lobbies/lobbyists in Washington" describing it as "extremely dangerous" and "not transparent."


She continued, "Clearly, it has an agenda and I think it's a very scary agenda in terms of U.S. interests because it doesn't represent U.S. interests and I think that's been very well documented. Even going back, in the past, U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI have both investigated spying allegations and I don't think that’s a secret. There has been a real effort to have it registered as a foreign agent and there continues to be that kind of effort and it should be registered as a foreign agent because that is what it is representing."


She added that CODEPINK intended to expose AIPAC and on October 13th,14th and 15th when the AIPAC Summit is being held in Boston, they intended to have a teach in and a public protest.
