If nothing else, the recent revelation that Hillary Clinton had been accepting money from foreign countries during her term as Secretary of State underscores the need for a more honest way to finance our political campaigns. Reportedly, she was giving special privileges to donor countries in return for cash. If true, that stinks.
We now read that she expects to take in over $2 billion from PACs for her presidential campaign.
Keep in mind the fact that politicians of all persuasions raise their campaign money this way and frankly, it can easily be construed as bribery.
I’ve written about this before but we do need campaign finance reform and the Hillary scandal (and yes, it’s a scandal) makes it abundantly clear that America needs to reform our political campaign fund raising system.
