Political Money and Freedom of Speech

In this study, Kathleen M. Sullivan challenges the orthodoxy that political money must be limited. The author first outlines the current law of political money and proposals for reform, and then critically examines “reformers'” arguments by examining the political and constitutional theories that refute them. She concludes by noting that the best way to resolve the anomalies in the current campaign finance landscape may be to eliminate contribution limits entirely.
