CASE ENTRY

Free and Fair Election Fund v. Missouri Ethics Commission

In 2016, Missouri voters approved an amendment to the state Constitution that prohibits political committees from receiving contributions from other political committees. Eighth Circuit (splitting from the Eleventh Circuit): This violates the First Amendment. The law serves as a “prophylaxis-upon-prophylaxis,” and any risk of corruption from PAC-to-PAC money transfers is modest at best.
