    Make all govt fraud penalties be an automatic 200% restitution of all money gained due to the fraud.
    A corp could no longer pay a 50K fine and pocket the 2 million they made from the fraudlent activities. Aka just a cost of doing business.

    Politics is exempt for truth in advertising.

    lets just start with govt fraud.
    Obama should add that to his re-election rhetoric.

    How could one determine the reparation amount when, say, it is a presidential ad that isn't truthful?

    A standard $50 mil?

    Duhhh! Who do you think made the law?
    Political advertisements/speeches ARE specifically exempt from the truth in advertising law.

    congress is also exempt from sexual harassment crimes, etc.
