Cenk, you're an idiot. If you force politicians to wear sponsor logos, they wouldn't be wearing any logos. Duh.

The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Actof 2002 prohibits corporations and labor unions from making direct contributions or expenditures in connection with federal elections. LINK

Corporations are allowed to donate to super PACs which are completely unlinked to the candidates. The candidates cannot control who donates and where the money is spent. So even people like Bernie Sanders has a couple Super PACs because he cannot control them and they exist even if he doesn't want them to.

However, your wolfpac campaign does just the opposite. You want us to donate money to keep money out of politics. Hmm.. Doesn't seem logical does it?!?!?
