Frontline on Montana Campaign Finance

PBS's Frontline released a documentary last week on campaign finance in Montana that's well worth a look.  The documentary provides background on American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock, the case challenging Montana's restriction on independent campaign expenditures.  The Supreme Court summarily reversed a lower court ruling in that case upholding the restriction.

We covered the Supreme Court's recent rejection of an application to vacate the Ninth Circuit's stay of a lower court ruling that Montana's campaign contribution limits violated the First Amendment.
