ICPR Statement on SuperPACS in State Elections
One month ago today, ICPR began its' response to a new federal lawsuit that threatened to allow large donors to give unlimited campaign contributions to benefit chosen candidates. Yesterday, our worst fears were realized when Judge Marvin Aspen, following rules laid out in the US Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, permanently recquired the State Board of Elections to recognize SuperPACs in state and local elections.
