Washing our dirty money in public

Yesterday’s New York Times included an op-ed piece suggesting that Congress close the loophole that allows charities to serve as conduits of money to politicians and lobbyists as a way of concealing the money’s ultimate provenance.  It seems inarguable that charities have better things to do than serve as money laundries for politicians.

Another reason, albeit a secondary one, to promote free tv time and a concomitant removal of money from the political process: preserving the integrity of the nonprofit sector.
