Summary note
"The Campaign Finance Cases tells the legal story of campaign finance reform from the early efforts in Buckley v. Valeo (1976), to the McConnell v. FEC case in 2003 that largely upheld the McCain-Feingold Act, to the landmark Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions. Noted legal historian Melvin Urofsky shows that the early effort to distinguish between donated money as opposed to money spent by candidates made little sense. For all the uproar about Citizens United, the decision made good legal sense, but now it is up to Congress to enact campaign finance regulation that meets the Court's criteria"-- Provided by publisher.
