In the news there has been a lot of talk about how campaign finance is bad because it allows lobbyists to give money to political parties to buy access. Nomiki Konst held a fiery speech about how a large chunks of the money of the DNC goes to five consultants. In a previous question I asked about the identity of those consultants.
It seems it goes to people who say on their website things like:
Tony does more than talk on behalf of clients – he leverages what POLITICO calls an “in-the-trenches sensibility” to offer expert tactical guidance informed by decades of legislative, political and public relations experience. Tony has been distinguished by The Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, The New York Times, GQ, Newsweek and Bloomberg Businessweek, among other publications both inside and outside the Beltway, as a leading lobbyist in Washington today.
As a German, it seems to be very strange to not give control of huge sums of campaign money to local parties but to self professed "leading lobbyist" who also takes money from corporations to advocate the agenda of those corporations.
Why isn't there public outcry in the US?
