Alaska Senate Candidate’s Parents Donate $300,000 to PAC

A former mayor of Anchorage and active U.S. Marine reserve Colonel’s parents donated $300,000 to a political action committee run by Karl Rove. There are media attack ads paid for by those pacs on ‘Dirty’ Dan Sullivan’s rival, incumbent U.S. Senator ‘Malarki‘ Mark Begitch broadcast and that makes me wonder about the fairness of a system that allows the rich to in effect launder campaign financing of ads through partisan pacs. It does not seem that there are limits to giving money to pacs yet ordinary people are limited to what? $1500 donations to a candidate-is that limit on free speech on ordinary people fair when the can buy as much support for their favorite candidate they want?

The media corrupts when it is owned by the rich instead of ordinary people.
