The Stupidest Scandals

I think the stupidest political scandals are the ones which involve "dirty donors" and associated calls to give the money back. Big bundlers and those big supporters who are effectively part of the campaign are one thing, but candidates really shouldn't be asked to respond to or denounce everyone who writes them a check. Given the donation limits for supporters of presidential candidates, no one donor can be especially important so the idea that the candidates are somehow tainted by them is silly.
