Campaign Finance Trial on Friday

By Diana Hsieh

This Friday, the Coalition for Secular Government will be in federal court, arguing that Colorado's campaign finance regulations on "issue committees" violate our free speech rights. (Our case is being argued by the fine attorneys of the Center for Competitive Politics.)

Basically, I don't want to have to do the equivalent of filing taxes every two weeks just so that Ari Armstrong and I can publish a very wonkish policy paper on abortion rights. Our policy paper isn't like a campaign ad, yet it's treated like one by the law... which sucks. (For details, read my December 2011 testimony to Colorado's Secretary of State.)

If you want to see litigating for liberty in action, the trial will be held on Friday, starting at 10 am, in the federal courthouse at 901 19th Street in Denver. We're before Judge Kane.

We have a good shot at making a dent in these unjust laws... and I'm very excited!
