The Vermont LP issued a press release today on the US Supreme Court campaign finance law decision.
As Vermont Libertarian Party Chair Hardy Machia predicted in February, the US Supreme Court overturned Vermont’s onerous campaign finance laws. Libertarians in Vermont are cheering upon hearing the news. A 6-3 decision in the Randall v. Sorrell case by the US Supreme Court threw out the restrictive spending and contribution limits on candidates and political parties passed by the Vermont legislature in 1997.
VTLP treasurer Michael Bandler was quoted in this article that appeared in papers today.
“I think they have betrayed us as consumers,” said Bandler, who is also distressed by the alleged part played by the federal government in the matter. “The threat to this democracy may not be overseas, it may be in Washington.”
