5 Congressmen Wearing Logos Of Their Financial Backers

358244411_8731cb0ceb

A recent petition on The White House website calls on congressional representatives and senators “to wear logos of their financial backers on their clothing, much like NASCAR drivers do.”

Here is the full text of the petition:

 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.

There are 23,535 signatures on the petition so far.

So what would it look like to see lawmakers walking the halls of Congress wearing the logos of their biggest corporate contributors?

Gentlemen, start your engines…

            you are just another punk jew.

          • strongergunlawsnow

            nobsartist is a pathetic coward. You are revealing your ignorant little mind right now and are bringing bad karma to yourself punk.

          • nobsartist

            You said that I said “kill the jews”. Thats slander and a lie so go fuck yourself.

      • nobsartist

        You are a lying, scum bag, racist jew.

    • nobsartist

      The “jews” seem to get very upset when you ask “where did you get 200 nukes”?

      So when is Israel going to let the IEA in so they can take a sample from each nuke to figure out how they were obtained?

      So why do the jews think it is o.k. for them to STEAL 200 nukes but nobody else is allowed in the region to have them? They didnt make them themselves so how did they get them?

      Who sold Israel nukes or who did they steal them from?

      My source tells me Israel stole them from the Hanford site.

  • It’s interesting that four out of five are Republicans, it would be interesting to see a complete list of all members of the US House of Representatives and Senate
