Electoral reform in the US needs must be a piecemeal process, not a revolutionary one. You start by disabling the lobby bloc and you end with changing the way the people are represented. I think a parliamentary system is more fairly representative than a presidential one, for a start.
I most cetainly disagree with your intimation of voting "irregularities" in "a single district" in "one election."

But I do not want to get too sidetracked, as we would just go around in circles pretty much.

As for money in politics, have you yet looked into the Citizens United vs Federal Election Committee supreme court ruling? Because this ruling was basically the coup de grace where it concerns corrupt money and politics in the US.
