In a recent interview, actor Ben Affleck said what most Americans think about campaign cash and political fundraising (emphasis added)

"Over time I became disillusioned, mostly with the pernicious effect of money in politics," he said. "I realized it was about raising $56,000 through a couple of dinners and those bundlers who bring in $1 million or $2 million. Those people are dedicated, and they believe in what they’re doing. I believe in why many of them are doing it. What I don’t believe in is that we now have the need to do it. And for me personally, it started to feel gross.”
