Campaign Finance

Campaign Finance

Regulations and restrictions on expenditures in political campaigns.

Regulated Political Spending

Proponents of regulated political spending aim to increase the transparency of political contributions and limit influence-seeking money in politics. They believe that letting the vast imbalance of wealth dominate the political sphere is a danger to democratic processes, which are premised upon the principle of equality.

Unlimited Political Spending

Proponents of unlimited political spending believe that political campaign donations are a protected form of free speech and that any restrictions are unconstitutional.
