Midland Reporter-Telegram: Panel weighs pros, cons of campaign donor reporting (In the News)

David Keating, the president of the Center for Competitive Politics, was more critical of the current laws, as opposed to dark money matters.
“To give an idea of how bad the campaign finance laws are, the tax code is a model of simplicity and clarity compared to campaign finance law,” Keating said. “We have freedom of speech in this country and we have people who want to speak out about government, especially during election season. You have to hire a lawyer. I guarantee you, you’re going to trip into some rule, and it’s a situation that has to be fixed.”

The Center for Competitive Politics is now the Institute for Free Speech.
