It wouldn’t be an election cycle without a bill to limit political speech, and Democrats are right. On Monday, the New York senator. chuck schumer brought back the Disclose Act to rid the countryside of the “evil plague of black money”.
The bill is sponsored by Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon White House, which suggests that it is a question of stifling political opponents. This would require groups that speak on political issues to disclose donors who contribute more than $10,000 in a two-year cycle. Any group that issues a plea and mentions a candidate would be covered, and that would include any mention of a federal judicial candidate.
