Davis v. Federal Election Commission
Featuring Benjamin L. Ginsberg
June 26, 2008

On June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court decided Davis v. Federal Election Commission, holding that the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act's so-called "Millionaire's Amendment," which imposes financial disclosure requirements on congressional candidates who spend more than $350,000 of their own money, and relaxes campaign finance limits on their opponents’ outside contributors, violates the First Amendment. Ben Ginsberg of Patton Boggs discusses the case.
