Million Dollar Contributions Corrupt Democracy

I was at the U.S. Supreme Court’s campaign finance oral argument today.  Please click here to find my latest on the front page of the Huffington Post, “Million Dollar Contributions Corrupt Democracy.”  Based on my academic work and practical experiences fundraising, I observe that striking down the $123,200 aggregate contribution limit would result in U.S. House and Senate members soliciting checks of up to $2.95 million per individual for a joint fundraising committee, and also result in quid pro quo corruption.
