Campaign Finance Lawsuit Update

We wanted to share with you some media clips and pictures from yesterday’s hearing on the lawsuit being brought forward by companies owned by Rick Green and Mike Kane to close the union loophole in state campaign finance law. The loophole allows unions to donate up to $15,000 directly to candidates, while individuals are limited to $1,000 and businesses are prohibited.

We were at the hearing and the lawyer from the Attorney General’s office essentially made the case for the corporate ban because according to his logic, corporations by their mission of capital accumulation are inherently corruptible. We will keep you updated on the lawsuit's progress.
