As Super PAC Money Flows, An Effort to Divert Cash to Charity

 
Democratic and Republican donations made through Repledge.com would cancel each other out

With the American political system deluged with super-sized donations, a few innovative proposals are trying to harness small donors and, in one case, divert campaign cash to charity.

The Federal Election Commission recently OK'd a proposal to let consumers cash in loyalty program points, like airplane miles or credit card points, for donations to their preferred candidate. The commission is mulling another way to empower small donors – allowing campaign contributions by text message — which has already been approved at the state level in California.
