to the campaign for campaign finance reform. For example, George Soros, founder of drug legalization efforts and other liberal causes, has contributed $4.7 million, including more than $600,000 to Arizonans for Clean Elections--more than 71 percent of the funding of ACE. Soros and seven other wealthy people founded and funded the Campaign for a Progressive Future. One of those people, Steven Kirsch, contributed $500,000 to campaign ``reform'' groups in 2000--and $1.8 million against George W. Bush. Another reformer, Jerome Kohlberg, donated $100,000 to a group that ran ads saying ``Let's get the $100,000 checks out of politics.'' Let's be clear. These people have and should retain a constitutional right to behave in this way, putting the (BEG ITAL)bouffe in the (BEG ITAL)opera bouffe.
