“Basic” Campaign Finance Reform?

The Post editorializes that more campaign finance reform is needed, in light of the charges facing Gov. Blagojevich.  Reforms needed?

[C]apping the size of campaign contributions; barring contributions from anyone but individuals and regulated political action committees; excluding donations from those who have or are seeking contracts or other business with the state or other entity; tightening disclosure rules so that limits are not easily sidestepped; and beefing up enforcement to provide effective, and timely, results.

Son after the scandal broke, the Center for Competitive Politics had mentioned that we might see editorials like this.

In March, I thought there might be a trend toward such restrictions.
