Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has been involved in a lengthy legal battle over campaign finance activities in the 2002 election cycle. On September 19, 2013, a Texas court overturned Delay's previous conviction for money laundering, citing the evidence as legally insufficient to sustain his convictions. Our experts will provide some summary of previous developments and technical background on the campaign finance aspects of the case, as well as offer a balanced discussion of the First Amendment issues at play.


  • Benjamin T. Barr, Counsel, Wyoming Liberty Group
  • Craig Holman, Government Affairs Lobbyist, Public Citizen


Call begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
