Mark Tapscott marks the fifth anniversary of McCain-Feingold Act with a call for its repeal. Not only does the Act constitute “a frontal assault. . .against the First Amendment’s guarantee of every American’s right to express political opinion without official restraint,” its promises have been unfulfilled. As Mark observes, “The ‘corrupting influence of money in politics’ is as strong as ever and there is no evidence that the law has had one iota of influence on the degree of citizen participation in politics.” For more on the latter point, please see Ryan Sager’s excellent analysis in the New York Sun.
