KD, isn't your proposal easily gamed? What's to prevent a candidate and corporation agreeing, "ok, Corp will shell out 50 million to finance media ads and candidate will use voter donations to print some pamphlets, and oh by the way, corporation expects candidate to vote for X"? So the money isn't given to the candidate. So what? The candidate is still selling his votes in exchange for corporate money. Even if they don't actually agree to do this, the candidate is going to know that he got elected because a specific corp, corps, or industry put up the money to get him elected so he'd better vote their way.
