I have read http://www.lwv.org/content/campaign-finance but I'm not sure how to apply it in this situation. I think a lot of League members are assuming support.
Personally, I find one phrase worrisome: "the amount of funds that may be spent by, in support of, or in opposition to such candidates." - my emphasis. As I read it, this is a direct response to the Citizens United case where an organization made a movie in opposition to a candidate but did not fund a candidate's campaign directly. It seems to me that the phrase could be used to suppress the equivalent of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 just as easily as the Citizens United film. On the other hand, it may be that both would be protected by the other statement, "Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress the power to abridge the freedom of the press."
Can you give any guidance?
