Cost-of-Running Raise

Re "Campaign Contribution Limits Hiked," Jan. 10: The price of buying your politician has just gone up again! Yep, those on the Fair Political Practices Commission, of all people, have found a loophole in Proposition 34, thereby undermining the will of the people of California.

This is an amazing country in which we live. In any other country of the world this would be called bribery. In America we call it campaign contributions. But for some reason, I still would rather live in the U.S. than anyplace else.
