But those limits, albeit legally, are being circumvented in several ways. Donors, particularly to Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and his Democratic opponent, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, are giving through multiple companies or to state and federal campaign accounts controlled by state parties that then shift the money back to candidates.
Both Democrats and Republicans benefit from the system. I'm not quite sure how one would fix the system. The people usually don't seem very keen to pay for campaigns out of the public kitty even though public financing is a favored idea of reformers. I'm also not sure if it would be legal to ban transfers from federal accounts. One danger with limiting donations further is that candidates spend even more time raising money and the system becomes even more skewed to incumbents who are able to gather cash from many sources
