I say its about damm time, McCain-Feingold is nothing but a violation of the first amendment.The law also bans the parties from taking unlimited big-dollar contributions from corporations, unions and wealthy donors — a type of donation known as “soft money” — and the RNC wants to reverse that as well.
The case will be heard Aug. 27 by a three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and the ruling could be appealed straight to the Supreme Court. An RNC victory would deal a major blow to the landmark campaign finance law named for Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, and open the door to a more prominent role for the national parties in state-level races.
