Dylan Doherty started this petition to Senator Roy Blunt and

While it is technically illegal to give money directly to a politician for influence, it is still happening right under our noses by lobbying groups. Corporations have lobbying groups put big 'donations'  into reelection campaigns if the corporations want the politician to help them by passing certain laws or bills.  The politician knows exactly where the money came from and who they need to help now. Big corporation abuse this and have become a dominate force in politics. I want my Senators, Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley to help stop this loophole. I see two potential solutions, one is that a bill is proposed that prohibits politicians from receiving money from any source outside their own job. However, that would be rather hard on smaller politicians giving the rich a better ability to campaign and a strong chance of getting elected. The other solution which I hope to make a reality is having an outside source or an elected committee vet all donations made to politicians. Donations would go through this group and they would decide whether the donation is legitimate or not. They would also keep the donations anonymous from the politicians so they would not be influenced to help anyone who gave them large sums of money.
