Observer News & Politics: After Decades Vacuuming Up Dubious Donations, Clinton Suddenly Favors Campaign Finance Reform
In an interview with Think Progress, two campaign finance experts emphasized what the Hillary Victory Fund has done this election is unprecedented and should be illegal.
“Their argument is usually that it helps the party generally, but the practical and legal reality is that it benefits Hillary Clinton. You just don’t expect this kind of thing to happen in the primaries,” Larry Noble, with the Campaign Legal Center, told Think Progress.
The article cited this type of fundraising has only been legal since 2014, when the Supreme Court, in the McCutcheon v. FEC ruling, revoked what legal protections in campaign finance law remained after the 2011 Citizens United ruling.
