    Default California politicians to don donor logos if ballot initiative succeeds

    Not The Onion!

    We have long made the case that legislators should have to wear sponsor logos on their suits. In California someone is actually trying to make such a thing happen.

    Seriously, how fantastic would this be?

    Of course, Brough is far from alone in accepting the financial help of corporate America when it comes to fighting elections. But if a seemingly outlandish proposal by a local California lawyer gets onto the ballot, he will not be able to stay shy about those donating to his cause.

    Nor will any other politician in the state. John Cox, an activist businessman, wants to require legislators to walk into their assembly chamber wearing the logos of their biggest sponsors.

    The shock tactic aims to find its way onto the ballot for November, a goal that will be made possible by gathering 365,880 signatures. That effort is already under way, after the state attorney general approved the text of the petition earlier this month. The nonprofit running the campaign, California Is Not for Sale, has committed $1 million for the project.

    I have a feeling that Planned Parenthood would get exempted from this.
    Stop believing stupid things
