A modest proposal for campaign contributor control

The WSJ tells us about the mess that Gray Davis has left for Arnold to deal with. Hmm - what might be the most equitable way to distribute the pain of recovery from Davis's debacle?

I propose the debt be allocated to Gray Davis's campaign contributors in proportion to their contributions. So if, say, 5% of his money came from prison guards, the prison guards could be hit for 5% of California's budget deficit.

No, this isn't a serious proposal. But I like the idea of making supporters accountable for the errors of their puppets.
