Good morning, today’s political law links

“LIKELY VIOLATIONS” OUTLINED.  CLC.  “Today, the Campaign Legal Center released a white paper examining prospective 2016 presidential candidates raising millions of dollars, while denying that they are even ‘testing the waters’ for a potential run for their Party’s nomination.”

REVOLVING DOOR VIEW.  Palm Beach Post.  “What we need to recognize is that a prospective job offer is the moral equivalent of a blank check.”
