The issue at hand is not only about campaign finance and the super pac money that various groups, nonprofits , unions etc spend to influence voters. If voters consistently did their own research on candidates the media advertisements would be less relevent anyway. Media ads are really about name recognition anyway.The really salient issue here is about corporate money influencing government and legislation through campaign donations and agressive lobbying once someone is elected and wants to stay in office and needs ever increasing amounts of money every election cycle. Corporate donors should not be writing legislation as they do now. The evidence is everywhere in legislation. Pick a peice of legislation and follow the money back to it's source. Who do the elected officials rely on for information about various bills they introduce? Candidates do not even have to disclose who is giving them money anymore.
