CCP: Wis. taxpayer financing bill unconstitutional

The Center for Competitive Politics criticized as a proven failure and unconstitutional the recently-passed bill to implement taxpayer financed judicial campaigns in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin state legislature passed the bill Thursday and Gov. Jim Doyle is expected to sign the measure.

“This program will do nothing to reduce money spent in campaigns for the Supreme Court, while penalizing the free speech of candidates who decide not to accept a government handout,” said Center for Competitive Politics President Sean Parnell. “The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear in its rulings that giving advantages to some candidates based on the free exercise of the First Amendment by others is not permissible.”
