Will you be debating for or against?

I would recommend looking up publically financed campaigns, or "NPA" candidates. I know in Florida and New Mexico, a politician can run on essentially on the public's dime if he takes contributions roughly equating to processing the cost of the forms, and a few have not only been elected, but routinely re-elected due to how well they have executed their jobs.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

What do you mean by tainted?
I'd say the debate can revolve around this, and you say that X should not be relevant.

Well, I suggest you meet some actual politicians. There are many who are untainted. They may be jerks, they may be stupid, but there are some that actually want to do the job of helping their consistency

By tainted i mean uncorrupted

And this means.......
If you are suggesting that lobbyists corrupt politicians, that may be true, or it could be that lobbyists target those that already agree with them, which means there is no corruption.
Plus, you could look much more locally. Do you think town mayors, city council folks, and even state legislators are corrupt?
