That is whole point. Now even the small town/city politicians will be sucking up to big money now instead of their constituents. And the money can come from anywhere. Sure, a grocery store clerk in Smalltown can compete with outside Koch money.
How exactly will that affect elections?

Let's say, Duke Industries has run out of rivers to poison in the South.
So they head west to find other rivers to pollute. They find a sleepy little town in Idaho with a beautiful pristine river, perfect to pollute. But the taxes are too much, like a dollar. The best way to get those taxes lower and pollute the river, is to own the town by buying the one or two elected officials it has. I assume you are an adult and can take the story from there.
