White House Petition of the Day: Make Legislators Wear Logos of Corporate Backers

The latest brilliant idea to come out of We The People website is this petition suggesting that lawmakers should be required to be more transparent about their financial backers by wearing logos of their corporate “sponsors,” just like the NASCAR drivers do. As of Thursday evening, it has accrued more than 9,000 of the 100,000 signatures it needs to be formally addressed by the White House. GOOD magazine previously explored this idea with photoshopped mockups of New York Senator Charles Schumer and Florida Senator Marco Rubio donning logo patches of their contributors on their suits.

Hat tip goes to Dangerous Minds.

Not likely to go anywhere (just NASCAR drivers, who drive in circles), but sort of amazing.
