Fix ‘Swiss Cheese’ Campaign Finance Law –

Swiss cheese — that’s what Connecticut’s current campaign finance law resembles [Nov. 20, editorial, “Saved, But Still Needing Fixes”].

The editorial correctly notes that this law, which was changed in 2013 in spite of Republican opposition, is riddled with loopholes.

And it should shock no one that those loopholes are easily exploited. Money now flows freely into state political campaigns.

Want clean elections?

Call majority Democrats at the State Capitol and tell them to fix the “swiss cheese” law.
