The so-called “campaign finance” reforms rather than removing the cause of the problem of the buying and selling of political favors magnify the problem, by expanding the politician’s powers to control its citizens. 

These so-called “reforms” will reinforce the real cause of the problem — the power of politicians to grant favors — by giving government officials increased powers, which it should not possess. Examples of such rights-violating powers include censorship of speech by banning ‘political advertising’, and giving politicians the power to use tax funds to pay for their campaigns!
