Senate Campaign Finance Bill Kills Free Speech

by - May 02, 2013

The American Conservative Union Thursday called for the Senate to reject a bipartisan campaign finance bill introduced this week, saying it "infringes on freedom, privacy, and free speech" and "inhibits political discourse." The legislation was introduce Tuesday by Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden and Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski. The two wrote in a Dec. 27 Washington Post piece that the bill's intent would be to prevent the American people being from “forced to suffer through another election cycle filled with anonymous sleaze and innuendo.” A press release from the ACU, however, said the bill “deprives every American citizen of the rights to support causes of their choice without fear of retribution from their bosses, neighbors, or government officials.”
