‘Citizens United II’ could open floodgates to more spending

October 6, 2013

The Supreme Court may be poised to demolish another set of campaign finance restrictions, as the justices weigh whether to strike down decades-old limits on campaign giving.

The case, known as McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, comes nearly four years after the High Court’s controversial Citizen’s United ruling, which helped bring in unlimited donations to outside groups.

Experts say the stakes could be even higher in the McCutcheon case, set for oral arguments on Tuesday.

At issue in the case are aggregate contribution limits – the maximum amount that a donor can give to federal candidates and political party committees throughout the course of a two-year election cycle.

Dubbed “Citizens United II” by watchdogs, they worry without the limits, donors’ influence will only grow.
