A "pro-liberty" political action committee is challenging the state?s campaign-contribution limits, which it claims give an unfair advantage to legislative leaders who are exempt from them.
Liberty Justice Center ? through its client, Illinois Liberty PAC ? filed the suit challenging the constitutionality of the limits Tuesday in federal court. Dan Proft, chairman of Illinois Liberty PAC, said the law violates the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment and the First Amendment.
