Right to Life Gets Support for FEC Challenge

The ACLU and AFL-CIO were among the organizations filing amicus briefs this week in support of Wisconsin Right to Life's Supreme Court appeal of its case against the FEC.

Wisconsin Right to Life is appealing to establish an exception to McCain-Feingold for grassroots lobbying. The law prohibits funding of electioneering communications within 30 days before a primary election or 60 days before a general election.

The U. S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case in January.
