Court Issues Injunction Against GAB

From the email… It’s good to see some of the dumb campaign finance rules fall.

The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin has granted CRG Network a preliminary injunction enjoining the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) from “implementing or enforcing Wis. Stats. § 11.26(9)” the statute limiting aggregate contributions by Political Action Committees (PACs) to candidates for public office.
CRG Network spokesperson Chris Kliesmet added, “It was ridiculous for the GAB to argue that our small contribution was any more influential or corrupting that the thousands of dollars contributed by others before us. Moreover, such arbitrary limits are a fundamental violation of First Amendment rights and our ability to support the candidate of our choice. Now, a federal court agrees. We wish to thank the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty for their help and artful defense of free speech on behalf of all Wisconsinites.”
