  • I, as the representative of the nine judges and chief justice, grant the writ of certiorari. 
  • US Supreme Court
  • The limits placed on electoral expenditures by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 violate the First Amendment's freedom of speech and association clauses. I should be able to choose and spend however much I would like on something I would like to support.
  • US Supreme Court
  • Restrictions on individual contributions to political campaigns and candidates did not violate the First Amendment since the limitations of the FECA enhance the integrity of our system of representative democracy by guarding against unscrupulous practices.
  • US Supreme Court
  • It was constitutional to put restrictions on third party contributions to political campaigns & candidates..
  • ..and to create a system for voluntary government funding of campaigns and limited spending by candidates who used this funding.
  • US Supreme Court
  • However, it was unconstitutional to put restrictions on independent expenses by candidates from their own personal resources, and to arrange a system where Congress could directly appoint FEC commissioners.
  • US Supreme Court
  • Therefore, the limits of FECA on the 1st amendment rights are unconsitutional, but the FEC is still able to regulate an individual's spending on campaigns to prevent corruption.
