David Walker on Government Reform
A: Yes, as well as additional transparency in connection with Super PACs and other types of organizations. I'm for Constitutional Amendment on campaign finance reform--the system is absolutely out of control. The only way is a Constitutional Amendment given the Supreme Court decision. I'm for an Amendment to rationalize the current political campaign system.
Q: You're referring to Citizens United, which allowed unlimited donations to PACs?
A: Yes, it was a mistake. I understand corporations are "persons" for contract purposes--but the definition of "person" for campaigns should be "persons who can vote." Corporations and unions cannot vote. And we need more transparency over 501(c)(4) SuperPACs. More campaign contributions with total transparency is good--more so than limits with loopholes--but what we have now it the worst of all worlds.
