Massachusetts Libertarians file suit against the Campaign Finance legislation

Carla Howell and Michael Cloud released the following statement yesterday:

Yesterday, we filed a Federal lawsuit to strike down Federal Campaign Finance Laws. We are plaintiffs in an extraordinary lawsuit which will probably be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.

We are challenging the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002. This is the consolidated McCain-Feingold and Shays-Meehan campaign finance bill recently passed by the House and Senate and signed into law by President George W. Bush.

Our lawsuit also challenges the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, which established the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and its regulations.

If our case is successful, government power will be pushed back and individual freedom will be advanced.

If our case is successful, Big Government will be weakened and the Constitution will be strengthened.

Thank you for your support. We hope you are as pleased as we are about this extraordinary opportunity.

The current email also explains why the media has been such a big supporter of campaign finance reform legislation--they benefit greatly from it. This is a point that has been made on several occasions by Instapundit and others.
