    Supreme Court To Hear Campaign Finance Donation Limit Challenge

     

    The Supreme Court will hear a challenge to campaign finance laws limiting how much an individual can give to political campaigns.

    The justices on Tuesday decided to hear an appeal from Shaun McCutcheon of Alabama and the Republican National Committee. They are arguing that it's unconstitutional to stop a donor from giving more than $46,200 to political candidates and $70,800 to political committees and PACs.

    McCutcheon says he accepts that he can only give $2,500 to a single candidate but says he should be able to give that amount to as many GOP candidates as he wants.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the limits, but the high court decided to review that decision.

    Unless John Roberts TRULY was shocked by the results of Citizens United on the 2012 elections, it's a no-brainer how the court will end up with the usual 5-4 division.

      I think the ramifications of this has the potential to be very bad.
