petition to require congressmen and senators to wear logos of sponsors

Government 1

arnodf (1310501) writes "Since most politicians' campaigns are largely funded by wealthy companies and individuals, it would give voters a better sense of who the candidate they are voting for is actually representing if the company's logo, or individual's name, was prominently displayed upon the candidate's clothing at all public appearances and campaign events. Once elected, the candidate would be required to continue to wear those "sponsor's" names during all official duties and visits to constituents. The size of a logo or name would vary with the size of a donation. For example, a $1 million dollar contribution would warrant a patch of about 4" by 8" on the chest, while a free meal from a lobbyist would be represented by a quarter-sized button. Individual donations under $1000 are exempt.

Link to we-the-people petition, 55000 signatures still needed."

I am not saying you are incorrect, but the first sentence makes a bold yet unsubstantiated claim: "largely funded by wealthy companies and individuals"

Maybe it should start with the President. BTW, the Executive branch can't impose rules on the legislative branch.
