Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod took to Twitter this morning to reveal that he thinks individuals should be allowed to donate as much as they wish to politicians, provided the donations are fully disclosed.
The surprising revelation puts Axelrod in the same camp as many conservatives and libertarians, such as Doug Bandow of the Cato Institute.
In related news, the Supreme Court announced today that it will consider the constitutionality of limits on campaign finance contributions.
