The Bundling Boom

The Wall Street Journal's Brody Mullins surveys the widespread influence of "bundling," collecting individual donations and rolling them together into high-dollar, high-impact political fundraising. Although the term gained notoriety after the arrest of Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu, bundling is a longstanding and legal campaign tactic. Brody writes that "bundling has become the chief source of abuse in the American campaign-finance system." The story includes data analysis by Public Citizen and the Center for Responsive Politics.
