The reason for the sum of 2000.00 is tied to campaign finance laws. It is the largest sum that a single person is allowed to give to a political campaign. I'm a bit fuzzy on the details. As for whether it should be illegal, well that's kind of like saying eating or breathing should be illegal. This method of funding a political campaign is the bread and butter of the whole operation, and although it is highly ridiculous it is the oil that lubricates the whole machine.
