On August 27, the Maine Ethics Commission revised rules for contribution limits, to take cognizance of the U.S. District Court ruling Woodhouse v Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics & Elections. The court said it was discriminatory to let donors give $3,000 to gubernatorial candidates who run in a primary, and only $1,500 to a gubernatorial candidate who gets on the general election ballot by petition. The new emergency rules let anyone give $3,000 to any gubernatorial candidate. See this story. Thanks to Thomas MacMillan for the link.
