QUOTE: Skeptics consider the American system of funding elections a form of legalized bribery. It's legal because the law allows donations up to certain limits. It's "bribery" because the money is given to elect people who will do or have done essentially what the giver wants...Lobbyists are worried that perfectly legal contributions will sometimes be construed as prosecutable bribes and that their time-honored and (to them) highly valuable role as fundraisers might soon be thrown into question.
