"Corporat” or “corpoRat” (corporate/corporation + rat) is a derogatory term implying that corporations (and the people who work for corporations) are rats. “CorpoRat” has been cited in print since at least 2000.
a person employed in a corporation where he/she takes part in a rat race and whose life is a perfect example of a yuppie-rat’s life

This does exclude Dave the Skunk who has been exemplary - but then again he is a working class supporter since before the CorpoRats, and actually is a football supporter as well as a skunk.

This is one of those “kabuki” issues. It’s passage would prevent NOTHING, and would (“paradoxically!”) make buying representation even easier. There is nothing to prevent employees of larger, national/international corporations from receiving gratuities from the “home office” to contribute to candidates/causes favored by the folks back at Corporat, is there?
Given the endless and relentless telos of the CorpoRats to finally and irremediably undermine the basis of the “sovereignty of the People,” why is there any reason to believe that such measures conceal more than they purport to reveal?
