The reason requiring anonymity is not a plausible solution to the problem is because of the fact that there would be no way to prove that the law is being upheld. Becuase you donate on-line, if I really really wanted to, I could find out who you are donating too. The parties could just say "the candidate figured it out"Are you talking about the idea of requiring anonymity? Why isn't it plausible? Donations do not have to be made in cash or by handing someone a check. It may not have been that plausible 50 years, but when I donate to a cause I usually do it online. The only reason they know who I am is because the government makes them gather that information.
