GOP Sues to End 'Soft Money' Ban
WASHINGTON — Republicans filed a lawsuit on Thursday seeking to
overturn the ban on unlimited campaign contributions that is the
cornerstone of a 2002 law designed to reduce the influence of big
donors in politics.
Following an election in which Democrats raised far more money from
small donors, the Republican National Committee lawsuit would allow
political parties to accept unlimited donations from corporations,
labor unions and wealthy individuals.
Because there has just got to be some way to get around the whole unpopular-with-the-electorate thing, ya know?
