36. I think so, too--most of them anyway.

It would be nice to think there were a few who didn't realize it until later and then found they were indebted and had to go along, but I also wonder how long ago the Russian and mob taint started. How long ago did this money start filling the NRA? The super PACs?
Was it in 2014 when the Supreme Court struck down the ban on campaign donation caps or in 2010 when the Supreme Court rejected a limit to corporate spending in political campaigns?
We know the television propaganda model meant to dumb down average Americans and influence them politically began in the 1990s with Fox News--even earlier for radio (in the 1980s) after the Fairness Doctrine was repealed. Was there any illegal funding behind any of this, and when?
