Default California Politicians Could Soon be Forced to Wear Logos of Top Corporate Donors

GOOD!hope this gets some legs under it.

<Popular memes calling for politicians to wear the logos of their corporate sponsors have circulated the Internet for years, but the suggestion may soon be a reality for California legislators. In the next week, a potential ballot measure, submitted to the Office of the Attorney General in October, is expected to receive title and summary for the 2016 election, meaning its advocates will be able to collect signatures in order to secure its official place on the ballot. The proposed law would require legislators and candidates to sport the emblems of groups that donate money to their campaigns.>

<At the end of October, Cox officially submitted a request to add the measure to the 2016 ballot. In addition to requiring lawmakers to wear the logos of their top ten contributors every time they appear in the legislature, the proposed measure would also require political candidates to disclose their top ten donors in political advertisements.>

Of course, they target corporations and don't include UNIONS...

Well now!I guess the politically correct thing to do would be to allegate CORP patches at a two for one ratio, seeing that the election of 2012 businesses contributed $34.2 million to Super PACs as opposed to the $17.3 million donated by unions.

Then you have the pesky little fact that LARGE CORPS such as American Electric Power, Aetna, Prudential Financial, Dow Chemical, Merck, Chevron and MetLife form tax-exempt groups and funnel contributions to political parties.

Two questions for you Redd.Questions one=Do you give really give a ****whether the bribe from “American Electric Power, Aetna, Prudential Financial, Dow Chemical, Merck, Chevron and MetLife“ goes to someone that calls themselves a DEM or a REP? Guess who's toting the load/bag of money in the long run?

Question two=Are you still against campaign reform?
