CLC filed a letter today urging the Court to deny the Rio Grande Foundation's (RGF) Motion for Summary Judgment. Santa Fe's laws require that charities and nonprofits who spend more than $250 to support or oppose City ballot propositions disclose their donors to the government. RGF has challenged these laws, claiming that the City's interest in these laws is "minimal" or "nonexistent", and that they present a burden and potentially expose donors to intimidation and harassment. Voters have a right to be informed about the source and amount of money spent on ballot measure advocacy, and the importance of this right has been recognized by the Supreme Court.

The Plaintiffs' fourth amended original petition. Plaintiffs seek all appropriate relief to require public disclosure and to obtain judgment against the wrongdoers for twice the unlawful contributions and expenditures. Plaintiffs believe the Courts should uphold these disclosure laws as they have done before. Alternatively, Plaintiffs request the Courts to determine the issues once and for all so that an unequal political playing field concerning financial disclosure does bot persist.
It is argued that the Court should reverse the District Court's judgment based on: (1) Just as the taxpayers had Article III injury to challenge the legality of the line-item-veto procedure that retained a substantively lawful tax liability, candidate Nix has Article III injury to challenge the legality of the Section 5 procedure that is retaining substantively lawful electoral burdens; (2) Just as the President’s unconstitutional cancellation of the Medicaid funding law did not “nullify” that law, the unconstitutional Section 5 cannot “nullify” Kinston’s referendum; and (3) Just as the taxpayers brought a facial challenge to the line-item veto even though the President’s cancellation discretion was non-reviewable, Plaintiffs can bring a facial challenge to Section 5 even though the Attorney General’s preclearance discretion is non-reviewable.
