Federal Court Permanently Enjoins Enforcement of Outmoded Campaign Finance Law

According to this press release from Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty,
"a federal court has permanently enjoined Wisconsin’s statute that prohibits a political action committee, or PAC, from making a campaign donation to a candidate of even a very small amount if other PAC’s have already made a certain amount of donations to the same candidate. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of CRG Network, a PAC whose mission is to educate citizens and promote the election of candidates who are fiscally responsible. CRG Network attempted to make small donations to three such candidates, only to have their donations returned as a result of the law."
