  1. For years I have wondered why there was so much fuss over campaign contributions from the real estate industry. I was aware that developers frequently requested zoning variations, etc. I was aware that they gave separate names to each project. It never occurred to me that they might be funneling contributions from the parent company through the offspring companies in order to evade contribution limits. Now that I understand, I am as horrified as everyone else. Thank you for your excellent explanation.

Have simple rules and transparency so everyone know who’s taking what.
