Washington, January 21, 2010 | Wendy Riemann ((202) 225-5101) | comments

“I am pleased that the Supreme Court upheld freedom of speech today by striking down the part of the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance bill that barred union and corporate paid issue ads in the closing days of election campaigns.

 

“I have said from the beginning that McCain-Feingold violates free speech and today’s ruling confirms that.  This is not the first time the courts have struck down provisions of the McCain-Feingold law, and I appreciate their dedication to ensuring the First Amendment remains intact.”
