    but will they? That's the bigger issue. Why blow that money on the small fry when they can spend it on the head cheese?

    Buying one Congressman doesn't get you much. And it costs a hell of a lot to buy them all (assuming you even want to blow that much, and that they all win). On top of that, enough people have to vote for them, and they have to STAY bought, which isn't a given either.

    Nah, better to spend it on the guy at the top, and let him pressure the peons in Congress to bend to his will. After all, the very thought of getting primaried often brings them over to the dark side.

    Much easier logistically as well.
