FEC Files Brief with U.S. Supreme Court, Urging Court Not to Hear Republican Party Challenge to Campaign Finance Limits on Parties

Published on February 14, 2011, by in General.

On February 11, the Federal Election Commission filed this response in the U.S. Supreme Court, in Cao v Federal Election Commission, 10-776. The Court hasn’t yet decided whether to hear this case. The Republican Party argues that it should have been allowed to partially coordinate with one of its nominees, former Congressman Joseph Cao, last year. Federal Campaign laws restrict party spending in congressional elections to a greater extent than it restricts the spending of any other groups. Thanks to Justin Levitt for the link.

    Incumbent gerrymander party hacks LOVE all the campaign finance JUNK – to reduce any competition — in additional to having rigged gerrymander districts.

    How come a candidate can NOT say that — My opponent is a party hack tool of special interest gangs A, B, C, etc.

    Vote for innocent perfect Me.

    P.R. and App.V.
