ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the U.S. Supreme Court case McConnell, United States Senator, et al. v. Federal Election Commission et al., case number 02-1674, argued on September 8, 2003 and decided on December 10, 2003. Federal enactments designed to purge national politics of what is conceived to be the pernicious influence of big money campaign contributions include the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (BCRA), which amended the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, the Communications Act of 1934, and other portions of the U.S. Code. The Congress sought to address three important developments, the increased importance of soft money, the proliferation of issue ads and the disturbing findings of a Senate investigation into campaign practices related to the 1996 federal elections, upon enacting BCRA.
