Dear congress, we need an election protection law

A law that bans Internet funding.  There is no way to know where that money comes from.

Re: Dear congress, we need an election protection law

The SCOTUS Citizens United ruling makes teh little bit that dribbles in over the internet like chicken feed. CU assured that well never know where the really significant funding comes from.

 

Get money out completely. Short campaigns such as in Canada and public financing.

 

It you really want to clean it up that is, but your suggestion sounds more to me like a piece of the efforts by the GOP in many states to restrict voting or make it more difficult.

 

Hell of nuisance , this democracy thing is, isn't it.

Every time you put money and people together, you get fraud, cheating, stealing, or bribery or all of that.  I think you should give each candidate for federal positions a set amount of tax payer money, and that is ALL they can spend and tell them to be innovative, use their imagination and get the best deals they can with the amount they are given.  They spend money from anywhere else and they are off the ballot.
