Which means voting for people supporting election financing reform.

I had this thought earlier: how about just electing people who don't give in to corporate lobbying. Keep corporate donations legal, I don't care, just actually look at the disclosure forms of where their money is coming from and don't vote for them if you disagree with conflicts of interest. Or if they have PACs that aren't transparent, don't vote for them.

People are unable to make their voting decisions outside of the TV commercials and news articles they read, so I don't have any real hope for this tactic.
