No More Blatently Political Opinion
I have just begun reading the full text of McConnell v. FEC and I don't believe I have ever seen an opinion that more clearly adopts a political point of view and then relentlessly reasons toward such view with little regard to the actual law. The dead give away is on page six in the midst of the Court's tortured summary of the history of campaign finance "reform." The Court states very matter of factly:
"In early 1972 Congress continued its steady improvement of the national election laws by enacting FECA..." (emphasis added)
Hmmm.... "Steady improvement." Any doubt on where that decision is going from there?
