I'm against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections. But as long as it's doable I'm going to do it.  Because I know that guys like Soros have been doing it for years, if not decades.  And they stay below the radar by creating a network of corporations to funnel their money.  I have my own philosophy and I'm not ashamed of it.  I gave the money because there is no other legal way to do it.  I don't want to go through ten different corporations to hide my name.  I'm proud of what I do and I'm not looking to escape recognition.
