Just wanted to call your attention to the invite (below) that President Miles Rapoport sent out yesterday for our special telephone briefing on the Supreme Court decision inMcCutcheon v. FEC. The call is at noon ET, so there's still time for you to RSVP and join us.
If you plan to join, please let us know so we can reserve enough phone lines to accommodate everyone.
Hope you can make it,
Mary Boyle, and the rest of the team at Common Cause
By now you know that the Supreme Court on Wednesday issued an expected -- though still horrendous -- decision inMcCutcheon v FEC. The Roberts Court's majority ignored four decades of campaign finance law and struck down overall limits on what an individual can give to federal candidates, fundraising committees and national political parties.
The decision is certain to give elite donors even more influence and power over our public policies, and ripple down to elections in states.
