U.S. Supreme Court’s Assumption That Outside Groups Are Independent Is Proven False at the State and Local Levels

Public Citizen

Federal Election Commission decision that outside entities can be assumed to be independent of candidates is demonstrably false for state and local elections, as well as at the federal level, according to a new Public Citizen report (PDF).
