The question is, does unlimited funding nurture corruption in politics on both state and federal levels? Well we would have to view this in historical context. In 1917 in Butte Montana union organizer named Frank Little was forcibly removed from his hotel room and brutally murdered. This wasn't the police of Butte Montana, these were Pinkertons a private police force for corporations of the day. If that's not corruption what is? At that. Time copper was an intricate part of the war effort. War profiteering may not be illegal but it can be corrupt. Fast-forward 80 years the taxpayer and corporations in cooperation cleaned up Butte Montana and the Berkeley pit. George Bush must have been in office a whole year, when he changed the balance of liability for the funding of the the Superfund. Enabling corporations to pollute and leave disasters behind and forcing the cost on to the workers in the taxpayers. If that's not a crime what is. When corporations spend hundreds of millions of dollars influencing the political outcome of legislation and turn to the public and cry poverty my taxes are too high, I need another tax cut. If that's not corruption, what is?
