New White House Petition:

Require Congressmen & Senators to wear logos of their financial backers on their clothing, much like NASCAR drivers do.https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/require-congressmen-senators-wear-logos-their-financial-backers-their-clothing-much-nascar-drivers/vZBQJ18R

Since most politicians’ campaigns are largely funded by wealthy  companies and individuals, it would give voters a better sense of  who the candidate they are voting for is actually representing if  the company’s logo, or individual’s name, was prominently displayed  upon the candidate’s clothing at all public appearances and
campaign events. Once elected, the candidate would be required to continue to wear those “sponsor’s” names during all official duties and visits to constituents. The size of a logo or name would vary with the size of a donation. For example, a $1 million dollar contribution would warrant a patch of about 4″ by 8″ on the chest, while a free meal from a lobbyist would be represented by a quarter-sized button. Individual donations under $1000 are exempt.

(Cheers, Marc)

 Update: said petition is now visible 😉
