Election funding: reasons for support

Why should you support the Electoral Finance Act?

Just look at who opposes it.

I'm playing on the Electoral Reform Coalition's most powerful pro-MMP ad here, but there's a reason: because the same people who opposed MMP - Roger Kerr, Michael Friedlander, and the rest of the BRT plutocrats who saw real democracy as a threat to their interests - also oppose the EFA and its measures to limit their ability to buy elections. Now there's a surprise!
