Editors, Daily Planet:
J. Douglas Allen-Taylorâ€™s article about the public campaign financing law just passed by the CA Assembly bemoans the fact that there was no Republican support. I agree. On the Assembly floor the Republicans complained about how bad the current system of campaign finance is but they offered no solutions.
In Arizona the Clean Money system has already been working though three elections. More Republicans use the Clean Money funding than Democrats in Arizona.
The problem of funding election campaigns with special interest contributions affects both Democrats and Republicans. If Republicans do not join in the solution then they will remain part of the problem.
