High Court Weighs Campaign Finance Amendment

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday hears a challenge to the campaign finance law provision called the Millionaire's Amendment. The amendment requires that candidates who spend more than $350,000 of their own money on a campaign must publicly disclose large purchases. The former candidate who brought the suit claims the requirement gives opponents an unfair advantage in planning campaign policy.
