Make Lawmakers Wear Logos Of Financial Backers On Clothing, Like In NASCAR

This comes from a petition on the White House4 website:

“Since most politicians’ campaigns are largely funded by wealthy companies and individuals, it would give voters a better sense of who the candidate they are voting for is actually representing if the company’s logo, or individual’s name, was prominently displayed upon the candidate’s clothing at all public appearances and campaign events.”

Great idea — but the logo size should be proportional to the amount of the contribution. For example, all the New York City mayoral hopefuls are taking money from pretty much the same donors, but some are getting more than others. Proportional representation would allow us to see at a glance who’s been most successful at separating the fat cats from their lucre.
