Campaign Legal Center Receives MacArthur Foundation Award for Creative & Effective Institutions


The Legal Center has 10 years' experience defending and enforcing campaign finance, election and ethics laws.  There’s a lot to explain and keep straight given recent developments with Super PACs, changing laws, Citizens United, etc.   We think our reports, papers, and other documents will help you understand the different elements at play this cycle and how to make sense of it all.

Senate urged to Pass DISCLOSE Act to Combat Growing Crisis of Dark Money In Our Elections

Today the Campaign Legal Center strongly warned against the growing threat of Dark Money to our democracy and provided testimony to the Senate Rules Committee that the DISCLOSE ACT would provide the disclosure called for by the U.S. Supreme Court in a number of recent campaign finance rulings.  In a statement submitted into the record of today’s hearing “The DISCLOSE Act (S.2516) and the Need for Expanded Disclosure of Funds Raised and Spent to Influence Federal Elections” Legal Center President Trevor Potter and Executive Director J. Gerald Hebert condemned the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) “blatant override of Congressional intent” in the rules issued by the Commission to implement the disclosure requirements of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002.; width: 405px; right: 0px; clip: rect(auto auto auto 403px); white-space: nowrap;"; width: 405px; right: 0px; clip: rect(auto auto auto 403px); white-space: nowrap;">
