Personally I think the current campaign contribution laws allow candidates to be bought and sold by special interests. Then there are whole ad campaigns run by third parties that are not "affiliated" with a particular candidate but simply support them. Is anyone buying this? We need REAL campaign finance reform and we need it 10 years ago. We need term limits which will make it harder for politicians to become beholden to special interests since they won't be making a career of the office. Sure the article is about Democrats and while I like to poke fun at them as much as possible, politicians (and I mean every single one) are guilty on both sides of the isle on this issue. Time to do some REAL lawmaking and institute term limits and significant campaign finance reform. Note to the American people: Don't hold your breath while you wait for this to happen.
