One of the problems with the way things are right now: PACs and others may spend unlimited money on advertisements that the candidate and her supporters cannot control. Which means that, if I wanted to, I could form a group of liberals, collect money, and spend it on airing a video of the pee-resident being showered with his golden dreams. With a well known celebrity. And you wouldn’t be able to tell that it wasn’t an actual video. And you wouldn’t be able to find out who had made it, nor who had paid to make it available to view.
Of course, I agre with Morin’s intent: I don’t have to do that, he does it to himself. But I could … and that’s a problem.
