Federalist Society breakfast Oct. 24 on campaign finance laws

One of the major factors in elections these days is the effects of campaign finance reform laws.  Here’s your chance to get an hour of CLE, a full breakfast, and an opportunity to learn about cutting edge election law issues.  Join us! 


Please feel free to share this invitation with friends and colleagues, the event is not restricted to Federalist Society members


October 24, 2008, 9-10am (registration at 8:30) v. Federal Election Commission

Any time two or more people pool their resources to support or oppose a federal candidate, they become a “political committee” subject to government regulations and limits—limits that make it virtually impossible for new independent citizen groups like to effectively reach voters.  These limits are not only burdensome, they are unconstitutional.  Join former FEC member Brad Smith for a roundtable discussion regarding’s ongoing challenge to these laws, in addition to commentary on other current election law issues.
