Luther Campbell doesn't just have taxing strippers and decriminalizing marijuana on his mind.

"If you run for office, the maximum amount of money that you can spend on a campaign is $100,000," he said. "That's it. You don't need no more than $100,000...Cut out all the special interest guys. You'll get true, you will get a real, real quality person in a seat if you do that."
