The Money Behind the Elections

Money has become an ongoing and heated topic in American elections.
In 2010, the Supreme Court cancelled any limits on the amount of cash corporations, unions and rich individuals could spend during elections.

Super PACs, once a term that drew befuddlement, is now part of the mainstream political lexicon, describing committees that can spend as much as they want on a campaign just so long as they don’t work directly with the candidate.

  1. We have a limitation of how much an individual can donate to an electoral candidate. One former MP (minister of parliament) has just been convicted of accepting more than the allowance. Paltry numbers compared to America though. 🙂
