When campaign contributions are so large…

You think $2,500 is "so large"?

Because that's the maximum an individual can contribute to a candidate in any given election.


I wasn't refering to direct contributions within those legal limits. It's the super-pacs and other dark-money schemes that funnel tens and hundreds of millions of dollars to campaigns that are supposedly not coordinated with the candidates themselves. This flood of money permitted by the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision is bribery on a massive scale.
