Later today, the CCP Blog should have reports on today’s hearing in the Speechnow.org case.
SpeechNow.org is a completely independent group of individual citizens, not a PAC or a party. It is simply Americans talking to Americans about an issue of vital public importance—a right that is fully protected by the First Amendment.
In today’s hearing, IJ Senior Attorney Steve Simpson will argue that SpeechNow.org should be granted a preliminary injunction, protecting it from an enforcement action by the Federal Election Commission as the case proceeds. That would free the group to air ads and raise funds for political advocacy immediately.
