Even if you aren’t a Harry Potter fan, McSweeney’s has a hilarious article called “In Hindsight, Maybe We Shouldn’t Have Let Lord Voldemort Start His Own Super PAC”. Here’s just a short quote from it:
I’m not saying that Super PACs are inherently evil or anything. After all, look how that Citizens United case turned out—even the Supreme Court figured that well-funded special interest groups ought to have a constitutionally protected right to inject extreme sums of money into the political process. I mean, every American has that right, don’t they?
It just seems like under the old rules, Voldemort had a slightly harder time bending Congress to his infernal will. Campaign finance regulations used to place a cap on individual contributions, and the identity of each donor had to be logged with the FEC—so even He-Who-Must-Not Be-Named had to be, you know, named.
