Boehner as a NASCAR Driver: See Who's Sponsoring the GOP Leader

by Cord Jefferson
March 30, 2011


Three years ago GOOD had the idea to plaster politicians' financial sponsors all over their fancy suits, just like they do in NASCAR. With corporate money being such a huge part of the American political system—and with its influence set to get even bigger—it would help voters if our elected representatives were as transparent as possible about who's backing them, and to what extent.

Reddit user crandyj1220 has followed our lead. Last week he uploaded to the social news site his own Nascar-ized politician, this one of our new Republican House speaker, John Boehner. An image like this isn't all you need to make your decisions about a politician, of course, but it's sure nice to know when these people are getting fat checks from tobacco companies and health insurance giants.

If by chance you make your own NASCAR politician, be sure to send us the image. You can see a larger version of crandyj1220's here.
