    Will California Actually Force Legislators to Wear Sponsor Patches Like Nascar Driver

    There's an old joke out there about forcing politicians to wear Nascar uniforms that tell us who their corporate sponsors are. I can't seem to trace it back to its origin, but I assume it was an email forward from someone's uncle. Now, it's looking conceivable that that joke could soon be a non-humorous, actual thing, legally required in the State of California.

    snip

    "This initiative will require every state legislator to wear on his coat, stickers, or some kind of logo representing their top ten contributors," Cox explained. Even if not an actual sports coat, the logos must be worn on the legislator's person. "It can't be a sign that they hold up."

    Cox says he aims to do something about politics and money, even if the sticker plan fails, because he sees it as the bipartisan political issue du jour. "Trump, Sanders—everybody Identifies the problem. The issue is, what is the best solution?"

    I don't know... seems to be mostly conservatives these days who pop a political boner over a certain former KGB agent turned dictator.
