5. Tough to regulate election spending

But how do you prevent deep pockets from funneling cash thru "eligible" donors ?

What's needed are strict limits on campaign spending which will be opposed by every media outlet since they are the ultimate beneficiaries of the obscene amounts spent on annoying campaign ads.
Also useful would be independent fact checking boards who could levy immediate, substantial fines against truth distorted ads.
