” I want to thank, Enbridge, Monsanto, Nestle and General Motors for their on-going support . . . “

A couple of days ago, I was watching a clip from the US that included a wonderous idea for electoral reform. I don’t remember where I watched it or who it was — fortunately it doesn’t matter — the idea is this:

For the duration of the term of office, any elected official when visible to the public should be required to wear a Nascar style jumpsuit emblazened with the logos of hers/his corporate sponsors. The name of the corporation must be clearly readable to television viewers or bystanders in the case of a public appearance.

Any corporation sponsoring politicians would be required to maintain an easily found website with the extent of all current political support as well as historical records including names and amounts. This would allow we citizens to know who and what those we elect really represent.
