Supreme Court Strikes Down Another Limit On Money In Politics

The Supreme Court today struck down restrictions on the total that any person can contribute to all federal candidates for office. Today's decision left intact the cap of $2,600 per election that a contributor to give to any single candidate for federal office, but it invalidated the separate limit on how much can be contributed to all federal candidates put together — $48,600. The law was challenged by the Republican Party, and Alabama businessman Shaun McCutcheon--who argued that the contribution ceilings were an unconstitutional restriction on his free expression.
