    The “Truth in political advertising” bit stood out to me.

    Just like there’s a consumer protection agency, there should be a voter protection agency.

    Get caught materially misleading voters? No more going on the ballot for you. Get caught pretending to be running ads for a candidate when you’re not part of their official campaign team? Go to jail for fraud. Be blocked from doing official political business in the future.

    We have protections around other critical government positions; we should have them around political candidates as well.
