1. It goes to a PAC.

The PAC is supposed to operate independently of the campaign.

2. superpacs.

Groups organized to support a candidate can take in tens of millions to support the candidate of their choice. No accountability, no transparency.

3. PACs...

The $2500 limit doesnt really matter. If you have the money and want to get blow your money supporting a party, candidate or cause, there are ways.

I maxed out with Obama in 2008 and 2012 and had no shortage of organizations showing me how to give more to help him out. And all legal.

It might be "legal", but it ain't right by any stretch.
