Money and politics are a bad mix
You know we have a problem here. Our political system is being bought out from right under our noses.
No more brown paper bags full of cash. No more extortions from lobbyists who get their way by threatening to pull money out of the major parties’ political campaigns. No more hiding behind our shoddy donations laws.
Lots of people have been asking for better donations disclosures for years. Researchers, think tanks and advocates have called on the Government to fix this ever since John Howard changed the rules so that people wouldn’t be told about any donations worth less than $10,000.
None of those people have the power of a swing vote. I do, and I’m going to get this done.
