Long gone are the days when the only political use for mobile phones was sending a picture of your penis to an attractive intern. The Federal Elections Committee has approved the giving of donations to campaigns via text…
In a rare instance of bipartisan agreement, the six-member panel unanimously approved a proposal by two political consulting companies — one Republican and one Democratic — to work with a third-party aggregator to collect donations by text.
Both Romney and Obama wrote letters to the FEC voicing their support. Who says we're a nation divided along party lines? The one thing both campaigns will agree on is "GIMME! GIMME! GIMME!"
The move is expected to counteract the influence of Super PACs, which support both presidential campaigns, but which has been a bigger boon for Republicans than Democrats. Who knows? Maybe one of these days, average people are going to be able to buy their very own Scott Walker using nothing but their cellphones!
