Republican Judge Reaffirms Assault On Campaign Finance Laws

Judge James Cacharis, the Reagan-appointed judge whose “Citizens United on steroids” decision struck down the ban on corporate contributions to candidates, has reaffirmed his decision, despite initially indicating that he would reconsider it. The new opinion does clarify, however, that he is not excising the law from the books entirely, but merely saying it cannot be applied to the person appearing in his court.
