Justices strike down political donor limits - CNN.com
(CNN) -- The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down current limits on the total amount individual donors can make to political campaigns.
At issue is whether those regulations in the Federal Election Campaign Act violate the First Amendment rights of contributors.
The 5-4 ruling could have an immediate impact on November's congressional midterm elections, and add another layer of high-stakes spending in the crowded political arena.
File this under "duh", although you can never be quite sure with this Supreme Court.
The fact that it's 5-4 is astounding. That "four" don't even think you should have to present a valid ID to vote, but they want to tell valid voters what to do with their money.
