About Me

I am a conservative attorney who specializes in campaign finance and election law.  I am a partner at The Gober Group (posts are my own, and do not reflect the views of my employer). I also teach Election Law at Brigham Young University Law School.  I am on the national board of the Republican National Lawyers Association and the CEO of Project Elect, a nonprofit organization that encourages women of faith to run for public office.  

I have extensive presidential campaign experience, I worked as campaign finance counsel for McCain-Palin 2008 and was Deputy General Counsel for the Romney for President.  

I have also worked as legal counsel to the Committee on House Administration of the U.S. House of Representatives where I focused on issues such as HAVA implementation, election integrity, congressional ethics, and campaign finance. I worked at the Federal Election Commission as law clerk to Commissioner Michael E. Toner and at the DC law firm Caplin & Drysdale where I focused exclusively on campaign finance, election law and lobbying issues.  I received my law degree from Georgetown University Law Center and a bachelor's degree in political science and journalism from Brigham Young University. 

I research and write about election security and integrity, campaign finance, First Amendment and other issues where politics and law collide.  I have appeared on numberous national and international media outlets, including Fox News and NPR.  To contact me for an interview, please click here.  

Nothing on this site is intended to be legal advice, and nothing on the site creates an attorney-client relationship with me.  Comments are the views of the commenter, not mine.  I post links that I find topical and interesting, not that I necessarily agree with.
