Maybe better oversight of how much, where and how it is used of the campaign donations is needed, but then again we could say something about Bubba Long and his use of funds. Overall a limit on donations equal to the salary of elected officials and that is all that is allowed to be spent on campaigning in total. No PAC's involved or outside interests running their own advertisements to achieve a goal of no real use to citizens and reaching out to get responsible citizens involved in running for office. The system has tilted so far out of balance with Koch Bros and others involved in getting persons elected it is impossible to keep corruption out of politics. Harkens back to the 20's and Pendergrass era of KC. Just very disappointed in the knowledge and involvement in voters to not see a problem with Greitens in first place. Like a bunch of Lemmings.
