"In the 2008 campaign, only one of the six leading candidates (Barack Obama) is providing a list of his bundlers on an easy-to-find section of his campaign Web site. Two candidates (Hillary Clinton and John Edwards) maintain lists on Web pages that are very difficult to find from their main Web sites. The three leading declared Republicans, meanwhile, have so far offered little more than dribs and drabs of information about their fundraisers."
This week Public Citizen (PC) sent an open letter to each presidential candidate believed to be using bundlers (people who funnel more money to candidates than they can legally give), asking that they be transparent regarding these campaign funds. In "Candidates' Secret Santas" PC research director Taylor Lincoln describes the varying levels of our candidates' transparency, what we can do to reform the system and discusses the White House for Sale Project.
