The Other Big Case for the Sometime Chairmen

Following their victory before the Minnesota Court of Appeals, knocking out Minnesota's campaign disclaimer requirements (see opinion here), the Minnesota Supreme Court solidified that win last Monday when it declined to further review the lower court's decision. (AP story here.)

It is the second time in as many years when the Sometime Chairmen have rocked the election law world, and with it ushering out many of the old procedures and paradigms.

My arm-chair prediction: The implications of the decision in Riley v. Jankowski will be very far reaching indeed and the legal tremors are just beginning.

It seems to me that an anonomity law will just lead to more campaign finance laws. If the legislature can't limit speech through accountability, they will seek to limit sppech through limits on campaign financing.

This is quite libertarian of the SSC. Perhaps he should be the target of the "God Rot Ye Libertarians" toast next year. I could use a break as scapegoat of the traditional serenade.
