Politics is, for lack of a better phrase, a messy business. Cash is king; and for the vast majority of elections, it directly correlates to victory or defeat. We are at a crossroads in society now where the general public is becoming more and more informed as to where all of this money is coming from, and just as importantly, where its all going.
In this day and age, most candidates — Democrats especially — are swearing off money from Political Action Committees (PACs), in large part because they know their constituents are exponentially more engaged than they’ve been in the past with the campaign finance aspect of politics; they know special interests are constantly trying to buy our government’s favor in one way or another. Voters are beginning to wise up.
