White House: Electoral Reform Announcement

Associated Press  - Surrounded by Democratic party leaders along with an inclusive and diverse coalition of leading political activists, President Barack Obama today announced a bold new initiative to "get big money out of politics".  The President declared "Let me be clear, it's time to end the corrupt influence of special interests in our electoral system and it's time for the people's will to prevail".

Under the proposal, the President would name a special commission of the most highly regarded political science professors from leading American universities, assisted by volunteers from Google and Facebook, to develop an algorithm based upon a voter's ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation and class characteristics, designed to ascertain how each voter should vote in their best interests.  Votes would then be cast electronically on behalf of each voter, based upon how they really should have voted, as determined by the expert-developed algorithm.  The President went on to say that such a system would eliminate the need for campaign ads and expenditures and finally end "the reign of big money.  And Koch Brothers".

Questioned by reporters, the President insisted that the proposal was not prompted by the results of the mid-term elections, instead being driven by the urgent need for change to "get the American people on the right side of history".
