To me it is between C and E. I will go with E.

A - as .... than is unidiomatic - should be as .... as

B - redundant and awkward

C- I think .... public favored... should be followed by the "a clean act" such as in E. I know, I don't have strong case against this one..
perhaps someone else can fill the gap

D - as... than - same reason as "A"

E - idiomatic and seems correct to me

E for two reasons.

1. "as strong as" is correct
2. "atleast" serves the purpose for "as strong or stronger than"
