Alright, but don’t we really just need stricter disclosure laws?

A:

Disclosure is only effective if the people at large are actually paying attention to what gets disclosed – which, frankly, they aren’t. And knowing where the money comes from doesn’t take any of its power away. Disclosure laws keep candidates honest about where they are getting their money, but in reality, they don’t actually do anything to reduce its influence.
