NEW YORK — A nonprofit conservative organization advocating for less government must disclose information about its major donors to New York’s attorney general if it wants to solicit money in the state, a judge said Monday.

U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein said it appeared that Citizens United will not succeed in a lawsuit it brought on First Amendment grounds to try to block disclosures of the information to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, including names, addresses and the total contributions of major donors.

The judge noted that there is no evidence that Schneiderman’s policy presents a risk that there will be public disclosure of major donor information. He said the group’s “fears of public backlash and financial harm are speculative and fail to support their contention” that the requirement will chill donors’ association with and contributions to charities.

    Well that closes down Hillary and her numerous major donors. I wonder if she has been paying those 7500 fines. She probably has gotten around all that by now. Another case of cutting off your nose to spite you face.meh

    Hopefully this will be appealed and Judge Stein is censured by a superior court. This is a brazen attempt to silence support for the Constitution. More leftist oppression from the democrat party.
