'Clean Money' Proposal

September 30, 2003

Re "Huffington Urges 'Clean Money' Law," Sept. 26: Any candidate, any proposal, any nod in favor of jettisoning the venal character from our electoral system should be embraced. The majority of Americans feel disenfranchised from the democratic process and recognize the need for campaign finance reform. This recall campaign, dominated by news of special-interest contributions, is a perfect example. "Clean money" public financing of the sort proposed by Arianna Huffington would solve the problem and level the playing field. Elections should be a contest of ideas, not bankrolls.
