Partners Submit Brief in Favor of Campaign Advertising Disclosure

The Center for Media and Democracy, Center for Responsive Politics, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Common Cause, the League of Women Voters, the Sunlight Foundation and other groups filed an amicus brief in Van Hollen vs. Federal Election Commission. The case will be heard in the DC Court of Appeals, after the lower court ruled that the FEC had improperly narrowed the rules of disclosure for outside groups spending on electioneering communications like campaign advertisements.
