Political Financing: A Modest Proposal

Here’s how to reduce the influence of money in elections: no politician should be allowed to accept contributions from outside their district.

This applies at all levels: city, county, state and nation. The Federal Election Campaign Act bans foreign contributions, and we need a Keep Elections Free Of Outside Money Act.

Senators would only be allowed to raise money from within their state, and Representatives from within their district. The same would apply to City and County officials.
