Good morning, here are political law links for Thurs., 7/12/12

NEW DISCLOSE ACT.  The Hill.  “Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and eight other Senate Democrats proposed new legislation on Tuesday that seeks to counteract the 2010 Citizens United case in which the Supreme Court ruled that the government cannot limit political spending by corporations, unions or other groups.”  The Hill has a copy of the bill here.

GET ON THE BUS.  Roll Call.  “One K Street shop is taking to Tampa like rock stars, gassing up a luxury bus that it plans to use to ferry friends and clients to receptions during the Republican convention.”

REP. BERKLEY ON ETHICS ISSUES.  Politico.  “‘My only concern was for the health and well-being of the people of Nevada,’ Berkley said Monday in an umpteenth reiteration of her defense. ‘I couldn’t have lived with myself if I had stepped back. … They needed me.'”

WHAT THE MAYOR KNEW.  The Post.  “Mayor Vincent C. Gray knew in January that associates spent money on behalf of his successful 2010 election that was not properly reported, a violation of campaign finance laws, according to people with knowledge of the ongoing criminal investigation.”

MONEY MATTERS?  DOESN’T MATTER?  The Post.  “Obama probably will be similarly outspent in the end, but given the near-parity in bank accounts on both sides, it won’t make much difference.”


HAVE A GREAT DAY.  The next set of links will be prepared on Monday.
