Pretty good company to be in!
The Court’s decision on Wednesday in McCutcheon v. FEC, striking down the aggregate limits on contributions to political parties, political action committees, and candidates for federal office, continues to dominate coverage of, and commentary on, the Court. Yesterday this blog kicked off its symposium on the decision with a foreword from Ronald K.L. Collins and David Skover; that was followed by commentary from Richard Hasen, Burt Neuborne, Ilya Shapiro, and Paul Smith. Look for additional commentary today from Jan Witold Baran and Fred Wertheimer. Coverage of the decision comes from Chris Geidner at BuzzFeed, Sahil Kapur of Talking Points Memo (here and here), ISCOTUS (video), Adam Liptak of The New York Times, PJTV (which has a video interview with me on the case), and Steven Mazie at The Economist’s Democracy in America blog. Commentary on the McCutcheon decision comes from Dahlia Lithwick of Slate, Garrett Epps of The Atlantic, Beverly Mann at Angry Bear (here and here), and Michael Bobelian of Forbes.
