Comment: Require all contributions be made in bitcoin (Score 1) 49

by rolofft (#45505439) Attached to: FEC Will Not Allow Bitcoin Campaign Contributions

I read a comment from political scientist Ray Laraja that I thought was interesting: "It doesn't sound like [the FEC commissioners] are going to do this, but if they allow bitcoins to remain anonymous then politicians actually wouldn't know who's giving to them. And so at least in theory, that could cut off this corrupt exchange." I don't know how feasible that really is, but would it improve things if all political contribution were required to be made anonymously via bitcoin.
