Please join the ACLU and ACS for a panel discussion about campaign finance and McCutcheon v. FEC. The case, argued before the Supreme Court this term, has the potential to change the legal landscape of federal campaign finance law. Erin Murphy, who argued the case on behalf of the petitioners at the Supreme Court, will be joining Tara Malloy, who was the principle author of an amicus brief on behalf of the Campaign Legal Center and others for the respondents. The event will look at campaign finance laws now, the arguments each side deployed for the court, and the implications of possible rulings. Should the limit on the amount of federal candidates someone can contribute to be lifted because it burdens First Amendment rights? Will it lead to a corruption of our democracy?
